Doesn't it seem too good to be true that Heronswood is open again? At the late summer/early fall Garden Open this coming Saturday, you can stroll the garden paths, check out how the renovation is progressing, listen to lectures, and visit with other enthusiasts. The plant sale and garden open is next Saturday, September 7, from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Dan Hinkley will be there to lecture and sell plants, including exceptional varieties of agapanthus. He'll be joined by other exciting plant vendors, including DIG Nursery from Vashon Island, Colvos Creek, the Rhododendron Species Foundation, and Dragonfly (among others). Kelly and Sue of Far Reaches will be there to speak and to sell their cravable plants. You can expect a fabulous assortment of late summer, early autumn plants to extend the season.
Heronswood is owned by the S'Klallam Tribe, and there'll be tribal artisans selling their work, the S'Klallam Singers will perform, and local vendors will be on hand to offer food. A goal for the future is to install tribal-inspired art throughout the garden.Admission to the plant sale and all lectures is free of charge. A donation of $10 is requested to take a self-guided tour of the garden. All proceeds will go towards the restoration and maintenance of the garden. Entrance to the garden will close at 4 p.m. Click here for more information.
