What will be at the Market at the Secret Gardens of Lake Forest Park Garden Tour and Market?

Friday, June 7, 2019

On Saturday, June 15, 9:00am - 3:00pm, the day of the Lake Forest Park Garden Tour, the lower level of the Town Center will be transformed into a lush green nursery.

This market is part of the Garden Tour event. Everyone is welcome to look, get inspired and even purchase plants and garden art that will thrive in our local environment.

Chimacum Woods will be at the market with a variety of rhododendrons. Chimacum Woods is devoted to preserving local species of rhodies.

The owners have also traveled extensively to preserve rhododendrons where their native habitat is threatened.

If the snow took out some of your favorite rhododendrons, check out the variety and color from this grower.

Lee Farms and Nursery have been a staple of the garden market for years. One regular visitor to the Market said, 

“My garden is littered with the tags from Lee Farms. The plants they bring to the market are perfect for my garden. Plants grow in the shade and in the sunnier areas of my garden. I appreciate the variety and quality of the plants they bring.”

Mason Bee house
Have you ever wondered about Mason Bees? They are native North American bees and terrific pollinators. They are different from the honey bees. Mason bees (named because they build houses from mud like masons) are solitary bees. As early pollinators with a 30-day life span, they are used mostly for fruit trees and sometimes blueberries.

Ray Strelecki of Michael’s Mason Bees will be at the Market for the first time. 

Ray raised 16,000 Mason Bees this year. He teaches people about how to raise bees and sells several varieties of Mason Bee houses. 

Ray will be happy to chat with anyone interested in raising and releasing Mason Bees. And maybe entice you to buy a bee house!
