For the past 20 years, we have held our annual Plant Sale the Saturday before Mother’s Day on the beautiful grounds of Chateau Ste. Michelle in Woodinville. We start planning for our sale in the Fall, and by December it is well underway—setting up the greenhouse, ordering seeds, plugs and supplies. By mid-February we had already started our tomatoes, planted our seeds, and purchased nearly everything for our greenhouse project. By mid-February schools were closed and the coronavirus was spreading in our community. Our membership considered not having our plant sale, but after lots of discussion we decided to keep growing our plants for our loyal community friends who come each year and enable us to support charitable groups in our community.
To make this possible, we are in the process of setting up an online store for this year’s sale. We plan to donate 100% of the sale proceeds to the community. As soon as we have this online store ready, you will be able to select your plants, pay for your purchase through PayPal and receive instructions that comply with the current social distancing guidance when picking up your order. We hope that our healthy tomato plants, beautiful hanging baskets of flowers, and many unusual annual flower varieties will bring each of you a bit of “normalcy” as we plant our gardens this spring. Thank you for your continuous support throughout the past 20 years. Please continue to check our website for all updates and stay safe.
