Presentations will feature special guest speakers sharing their stories of Botany & Desire. These special guests include Celebrity Gardener Ciscoe Morris, ooh la la!, Jeff Daley, Head Gardener and Arborist at Seattle University, Tim Clemen, author of The Plant-Life Chronicles of a Seattle Gardener, and Nita-Jo Rountree, local garden designer and educator.

Guests must be 21 years of age. Additional raffle tickets will be available for cash prizes and you do not have to be present to win one of three prizes. Take a chance  $10 for 5 chances to win one of 3 cash raffle prizes. All ticket income supports the Master Gardener programs and activities in King County.

And, last, but not least, plants, plants, plants! Special plant selections will be available only to Happy Hour Plus attendees. More surprises are in the works. So, grab a Happy Hour Plus ticket for yourself, a family member or a friend, or two!
