Scene in Edmonds: Floretum sale at Westgate raises money for scholarships

The annual Edmonds Floretum Garden Club plant sale was a popular destination Saturday morning, and the early birds got the best pick. "We had this place packed with plants when we opened at 9 a.m." said Barbara Chase, plant sale organizer. "One person bought more than $100 worth! By 10 a.m. most were gone." The sale benefits Floretum scholarships to college students studying horticulture.

  1. Yes, we are happy with the results of the sale. Most plants come from garden club members’ gardens. Volunteers bring in the signs, tents, tables and most of all plants starting at 7:00. By 9:00 we are ready for the customers. We are happy that gardeners braved the intermittent rain. We answered questions and helped people find plants good for them. Now we need people to apply for a horticultural or related subject scholarship. More information: http://www.edmondsfloretumgardenclub.org
