Member Garden Tours

Summer 2016 is starting out spectacular for gardening in Edmonds!  Many Floretum members are opening their gardens for private club tours , and now the photos are available to the public.  See a sampling below.

-  Joyce J.'s Garden

The  first thing you realize when you walk into Joyce’s garden is that it's amazing!  Joyce puts 110% into everything.  Her hydrangeas, dahlias and roses are lovely.  Joyce also grows blueberries and raspberries!

Mature rhododendron's and evergreen trees make Janice's garden  a lush, private paradise.  She also has beautiful maple trees surrounded by colorful ground cover and succulants.  Let's not forget her whimsical garden art.  It's icing on the cake!

Floretum Plant Sale was a huge success!

Our experienced gardeners offered perennials, bulbs, herbs, annuals, small trees, and shrubs from their own gardens, to make our May 7th Plant Sale one of our most successful. 

Thank you to all who donated plants and volunteered at this event.

Proceeds from the Floretum plant sale went to fund scholarships for two local horticultural students.
