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.

Come join us!
 

April’s meeting launched the start of a marathon gardening season.!

Floretum member Gwynne Briggs demonstrated the different characteristics of corms, tubers, bulbs, and rhizomes.

Featured speaker Grace Stiller from the National Wildlife Federation explained the value of home gardening in counteracting climate change.  Good stewardship includes replacing invasive species with healthy natives.  Stiller manages the non-profit organization Weed Warriors, http://weedwarriors.us/ (volunteers welcome), and she also directed Floretum members to the King County noxious weed program.  To find out where you can send photos and get your weeds identified, click here.

Summer 2015 was spectacular for gardening in Edmonds.  Many Floretum members opened their gardens for private club tours over the summer, and now the photos are available to the public.  Here is a small sampling. To see the beauty in its full gorgeous abundance, click here.
