Now Watson's operates in a series of Belgian-built, state of the art steel and glass houses.
See many previous visits here. Watson's is a large full-service nursery with a staff of 50 which explains how things always look so tidy and clean. There are always several folks around primping the plants, deadheading, etc.
Stachys ‘Bello Grigio’ is everywhere now. From my experience, it abhors shade and good moist soil, preferring sun, poor soil, and neglect in the hell strip.
Gratuitous plant sex scenes.
If you're looking for a rusty metal horse, Watson's has you covered!
Aluminum garbage can planters.
Hosta 'Electrocution' Hmmm.
Less lethal friends.
You can prepare for the fourth of July
or your vacation at the beach.
Upon what kind of alien beach did these shiny beauties wash? I kind of dig them.
This planter creature is pretty cool, too.
Want a garden room but lack a green thumb? All it takes is a little green in your wallet and a bunch of silk and voila -
Can't go wrong with blue and yellow!
There's always color to be had here!
A quiet moment at the cafe.
I forgot the name of this seriously tempting hydrangea with burgundy foliage and red, yes red, flowers.
So, what made it into the cart?
A couple more New Guinea impatiens, orange tuberous begonias for a turquoise pot, and Tagetes 'Lemon Gem' which I grow for the awesome fragrance of the foliage.
May your weekend be as bright and cheerful as the colors of these flowers! Sorticulture takes place in Everett this weekend and I hope to attend for the first time. By all accounts, it's incredible! Will I see you there?
