Get one or more raffle tickets by contacting your favorite King County Master Gardener, or plan to purchase a ticket at the sale at the Information Booth. Only 2500 tickets are available for sale. Winners will be announced Sunday during the Plant Sale. You do not have to be present to win. Remember that all proceeds from the raffle tickets and the plant sale go to the Master Gardener Foundation of King County which supports all the Master Gardener programs in the county.

Plants on Sale. You are sure to find a huge selection of veggies and herbs, see the catalog and our list of mini-seminars, perennials and natives, and, most importantly, tomato plants (see the list of tomato varieties for sale). The sale will include plants for summer vegetable gardens as well. Ask a Master Gardener to answer your questions as you browse the plants.

If you are interested in garden plants other than veggies, then this is the sale for you. Master Gardeners have been propagating and potting plants since last fall to ensure that you have a huge selection of perennials, ornamentals including trees and shrubs, and natives. A number of local vendors will join this sale to provide their own specialty products including plants and garden display items that will provide the perfect focal point for your garden.

Questions about Plants? The Master Gardeners will have their own booth and the MG Diagnosticians will be on hand to answer your plant questions. Bring your ideas and questions and get more design ideas as you wander the sale.
