The Washington Native Plant Society will host a Fall Planting Celebration on Saturday, September 22, from 10 AM to 4 PM at Magnuson Park. The Celebration will be a fun and educational event with bulb, seed and plant sales, plant experts from WNPS on hand to answer questions, and free tours of the Native Plant Border at Magnuson Park.
The fall season is the best time for putting in plants native to western Washington. Planting natives in the fall during their dormant period ensures plants have time to establish a full root system, and this will mean less watering during the hotter spring and summer months. To address your questions about preparing your garden for winter, native plant experts from WNPS will be on hand and informational books will be for sale this Saturday.
