Colette Highberger and Michele Dietzel have been best friends since age fourteen, so it was only natural that they start a business together as adults. That business is Garden Essentia.

Reader Lorelei Begalka nominated Garden Essentia as her favorite small business.

I  do my shopping locally at Garden Essentia. Collette has such a variety of locally made items to be purchased as gifts or for myself! I rarely enter her shop without buying!! If you want the unusual gift, go to Garden Essentia on Ballinger in the shopping center! This store is wonderful!!


They feature unique gifts and accessories for the home and garden.



Their Art Gallery features works by local artists. 


They hold classes and workshops on gardening and art and do landscape design and consultation.

Garden Essentia is located next to Thriftway in the Ballinger Village Shopping Center at 20152 Ballinger Way NE, Shoreline 98155. Phone numbers 206-453-3920 and 206-714-6547, email.

Oh, we have done our fair share supporting this local business. Place is addicting for neat things and practical art.

This is such a gorgeous shop and I can't go in without buying something! Colette and Michele are great. And, Colette did a wonderful job transforming my front yard into a garden.

I love this store as well -- the items are so unique. You can't go wrong - either something new for your home, or buying as a gift. It will be appreciated.

This is my favorite store in the whole world. There really is something for everyone here. The prices are very affordable. You can do all of your Christmas shopping in one place!
