Join us in the Emerald City where our local contact, Greg Graves, has organized an extraordinary collection of exclusive private garden visits. From our base at the boutique Mayflower Park Hotel in downtown Seattle we’ll make day trips to neighboring islands, including Bainbridge where we’ll tour Bloedel Reserve, one of the finest gardens in the nation. A day visiting gardens east of Seattle includes the Bellevue Botanical Garden; another day we’ll head south to the legendary Old Goat Farm for dinner and a nursery tour. Back in the city, we’ll visit the remarkable exhibits and gardens at Chihuly Garden & Glass. This tour will be escorted by former PHS board member Greg Graves will escort this tour. Don’t miss this special opportunity to get beyond the garden gate with one of Seattle’s most well-connected horticulturist.

This tour is under development with registration expected to open soon. If you would like to be notified of updates please email your contact information to
