I arrived shortly after they opened and had the whole place to myself for a little while.
There's always something interesting to see at nurseries in the pacific northwest, most of which remain open year round.
Because of our mild climate, one can plant almost all year long.
Does everyone love the ample and happy color in the high summer garden?
Forgot to plant zinnias yourself to fill in that area left blank by spring flowering bulbs? Just grab a few and throw them in. Lots of nurseries have sales on annuals this time of year.
I've been using Tradescantia pallida (the plant with purple leaves) with golds and oranges but it looks very handsome with this vibrant pink pelargonium
as well as with a screaming orange pelargonium.
These wood chairs remind me of some that the talented Alan re-faced. I like his better because of their iron and wood combination but these are swell too.
All pots were on sale the week I visited.
Some options for shadier conditions.
A winning combination for sun.
So many agastaches so little garden space.
Is there a pot of gold at the end of irrigation spray rainbows?
This woven aluminum (guessing) fencing is a perfect backdrop for bonsai. I'm totally loving it. What do you think? Would it be too much behind a perennial bed?
Tsugawa has a nice supply of water garden plants, and supplies. Their demonstration water features are all done very nicely!
I think the aluminum fencing plays well with the other elements here.
Did you bring us food?
So much to see but it's almost time to head back out to the car and get back on the road to Portland.
With foliage this colorful, who needs flowers?
One last look back at Tsugawa before getting back on the road toward Danger town!
