Heronswood Tour

August 6th, 2014

I’m happy to announce that I was able to schedule a tour of Heronswood on September 9th at 10 am.  This garden has been on my bucket list for a LONG time.  Last time I was in Seattle it was up for sale and not open to the public, which was a BIG disappointment.  When I checked about visiting this fall I found out that the minimum number of people for the tour is 10 (with a $10/person charge).  I went ahead and scheduled the tour, if I don’t end up finding a group of 10 I’ll be paying the tour fee by myself, which is completely worth it.  It would be nice to tour with the garden with friends, so if you live in the Seattle area and would like to join us let me know.

I’ve seen lots of photos of this garden and it looks amazing. I can’t wait to see it in person.

Do you have any gardens on your must visit bucket list?

    Susy, Seattle? Wow, that’s a long way from home. If I lived near Seattle, I’d certainly be going for the tour. I do like gardens and like to see other people’s garden ideas. Enjoy your Seattle garden tour. Mine is in such a shambles this year that it difficult for me to get inspired to carry on. I did get a few tomatoes and green peppers but there’s nothing coming behind that first flush of blooms. I’m hoping the potatoes will be good this year but they are looking extremely top heavy which usually means all top and no potatoes. Maybe I can redeem the year some and plant a small fall garden.

    Have a great Heronswood garden tour planning day.
