A special Open House!

Here's your chance to check out this gem of a nursery quietly hiding right under our noses here on Vashon! Carole Lynn Ives & Rick Paquette of Robinwood Nursery, a wholesale nursery that can also be found from time to time at some of the larger local plant sales including the Vashon Garden Tour Art Market, will be hosting a rare Open House at their Nursery this Saturday, September 22nd from 9-4! Robinwood will have a huge inventory of plants for sale to make room for all the new stock they will be growing through the winter to have available for spring. Robinwood specializes in a unique selection of trees, shrubs, perennials, groundcovers, dwarf conifers and a huge selection of hardy fuchsias. Stop by, I'll be on hand to help answer any questions you may have about some of the plants available and for general gardening advice. This is a sale not to be missed! Come with your checkbooks ready and cash on hand!
