When can I pick up my plants?

The 2018 plant sale is on February 10th, 2017 from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM. The earlier timing helps with plant survival.

Where can I pick up my plants?

The Evergreen Fairgrounds at the Commercial Building #400 near the main entrance.

How big of a truck do I need to pick up my plants?

Your plants are sold in compact bundles of bareroot plants, livestakes, or small pots, so a truck or a trailer is rarely needed to transport them back home.

How big are the plants?

Most of our plants are sold as bareroot seedings, and are pretty small. Approximate size ranges for each species are given on the info page of each plant.

All of our livestakes are 36" long and approximately 0.5"-1" in diameter.

Potted plants are sold in 4" or 2" pots.

How long can I keep my plants in the bags after the sale?

The sooner you can plant your plants after the sale, the better. Planting season in Washington typically runs from October - March, but can be extended beyond that if conditions remain particularly cool and wet, you're planting a wet site, or you will be able to irrigate your plants to get them established. If you're planning on waiting more than a few weeks to plant your new plants, it is recommended that you heal them into some soil in the interim.

What is the goop that comes in the bags with my plants?

That goop is a starch polymer that absorbs and holds water to keep the roots of your plants moist while in the bags. It is non-toxic and biodegradable, so you can either dispose of the excess in the trash or mix it in with the roots of your new plants for a slow-release watering.

My yard is sunny/shady/wet/dry/steep/etc, what should I plant?

The info page for each plant provides information on what conditions a plant will tolerate or thrive in. On the 'Mixes' page, we have also provided a few lists of plants that prefer similar site conditions. Here are some more resources for finding the right plants for your site:
