Thank you for joining us on Sunday, September 11, at Bellevue Botanical Garden (BBG) for our sixth Cool Plants & Hot Topics Master Gardener Fall Plant Sale and Talks. This annual plant sale at BBG continues the Master Gardener tradition of plant sales at this venue to help the Master Gardener Foundation of King County to meet its financial goals and provide funding for the WSU Master Gardener program in King County in support of their in-person plant clinics, their online email clinic and the various demonstration gardens situated throughout the county. Your continuing support for these events is greatly appreciated.

We are grateful to our vendors for their participation in this year’s fall plant sale. Please remember to support them. Thank you to the Master Gardeners who volunteer plants from their own, and their neighbor’s, gardens for this sale.
