Enjoy life's simple pleasures - grow food!
Come to our May Edible Plant Sale and take advantage of the largest selection of organically, sustainably and locally grown vegetable plant starts in the Puget Sound region. The May Edible Plant Sale is FREE and takes place on Sat. and Sun., May 4 and 5, 9 a.m.-3 p.m at Meridian Park (4649 Sunnyside Ave. N, Seattle 98103).
At our festive annual gardener gathering, you’ll find an amazing selection of tantalizing veggies to choose from -- over 50 varieties of organic tomatoes and 20 types of peppers! Many heirloom varieties will be available, as well as an extensive selection of culinary herbs, edible flowers and drought tolerant perennials. These irresistible plants have been hand-selected by Seattle Tilth's garden educators to offer the best possible selection of plants that perform well in our Pacific Northwest climate. This sale differs from our March plant sale because it debuts summer gardening plants aka “warm season” crops like tomatoes, peppers, squash and corn.
New gardeners, you’ll feel right at home! Our garden educators and informative signs will help you choose the best plants for your garden.
