Hello! We’re so happy spring is here. We have never seen the leaves so beautifully green and rhododendrons blooming so profusely. Bassetti’s Crooked Arbor Gardens is opening for the 2022 season May 7 from 11:30am to 4pm. We will be open through September every Saturday (11:30am to 4pm).
Garden tool care presentations, 1 pm, May 7 and May 14
On opening day, May 7, and the following Saturday, May 14, we will have a special class on taking care of your garden tools, especially shears and pruners. Presenter Owen Sarmany attends the Lake Washington Institute of Technology Horticulture program and has much experience using and taking care of garden tools. At 1:00 pm on May 7 and May 14, he will give a demonstration and talk on being good to your garden tools. Bring your shears or pruners and ask Owen questions you may have in taking care of your garden shears.
Plants for sale
This year we are making some plants available for sale: auriculas, lavender, and select trees. We are propagating more and more of my dwarf trees and some alpine plants and will eventually have more for sale.
We look forward to seeing you taking a walk through our gardens, enjoying the plants, trees and sculpture.
All the best,
