Gardening Ruminations and Germination

September Garden Events

GardenPalooza Tour
September 9 – 12, 9am – 4pm
Join enthusiastic gardeners at over 20 nursery locations in Oregon and SW Washington and enjoy a tour of fall fun!
Enjoy special events, discounts, demonstrations and classes.  Fall is a great time for planting and there is still plenty of time left to enjoy your yard or garden before winter returns. Take advantage of specials, discounts, classes and seminars that will help you be a better gardener and make your garden the envy of your neighborhood.

Berry Botanic Garden Estate and Moving Sale
September 11 – 12, 9am – 4pm (Members only)
September 18 – 19 9am – 4pm (General public)
Say it isn’t so – but it is. The Berry Botanic Garden is another casualty in our down Oregon economy. Over 33 years of public service with a historic garden ends as they shutter their doors. Make sure to add this to your ‘to do’ list.

HPSO Fall Plant Sale & Garden Festival
September 18 – 19 10am – 3pm
Free admission to the Portland Expo Center where plant geeks unite and money flies faster out of wallets than weed seeds on the wind. Specialty nurseries from distant locales in Oregon and Washington converge on Portland. Just think of the gas you will save by attending this event! That alone will let you buy at least one more baby.

8th Annual Gathering of Gardeners
September 18 – 19
Mix good food, garden talk, and the Great Tomato Taste Off. Mix in over 70 vendor booths relating to gardening. Sprinkle with live music and artwork and you have one incredible day.

Green on Green Fall Garden Tour
September 25 11am – 4pm
Six fabulous gardens are open for touring including the garden of Dulcy Mahar.  Special presentation by Linda Beutler on autumn floral display  in the Mahar garden (additional $10 fee). Marta Farris recycled garden art for sale in the Claybourne Street garden. $20 admission.

Portland Fall Home and Garden Show

Great show to drag the hubby along to. Leave him with the tools, windows and hawking sales vendors while you stroll through the fabulous orchid display, creative display gardens and plant sale.
