National Arbor Day
NATIONAL ARBOR DAY
Friday, April 28th | All Day
We're celebrating this national holiday with 20% OFF any one tree! Stop by and see our selection of trees: flowering, fruiting, shade – you name it! One discount per customer.
From the Nursery
Japanese Maples in Every Shade
Stroll through the nursery and you'll be overwhelmed at the beauty of our selection in a wide range of stunning colors, sizes and leaf shapes. Follow the brick road!
The Shishigashira Japanese Maple 'Lions Head' is a very compact, slow growing cultivar that lends itself to growing in pots as a focal piece in your landscape or can be trained into a bonsai early on. This bright yellow-green leaves turn pumpkin orange in the fall.
Unusual Hybrids: Itoh Peonies
These special peonies are an exciting hybrid between Garden and Tree Peonies. They are all highly sought after by collectors – yet easy to grow and very hardy. Itoh Peonies are herbaceous and lush with sturdy stems, so when the flowers grow to be quite large, they don't need to be staked like garden peonies. Check out all the varieties we have – now available in the nursery!
In the Greenhouse
Step into the Greenhouse and you'll feel like we passed spring and went straight to summer! The benches and hanging baskets are overflowing with beautiful annuals to add that pop of color to your container, patio and garden.
From the Garden Shop
Time to Plant: Seeds
It's the perfect time to sow your seeds. We have a wonderful selection of locally grown, organic and non-gmo seeds in the Garden Shop – think big green salads, crisp radishes and Willowood's heirloom Rockwell Beans!
At the Flower House Cafe
Cold Brew is back!
We make our delicious cold brew from fresh coarsely ground Useless Bay Coffee beans. We then let the grounds and filtered water steep overnight – creating a strong, concentrated brew with a smooth chocolatey finish. Yum!

Fall Garden Tips: Cover Crop & Improving Soil
Now is the time to sow cover crop over your beds to prepare for spring. This helps replenish nutrients, suppress weeds, loosen the soil and add nitrogen back in. You don't need much – a little seed goes a long way!
Be sure to take advantage of our sale on Gardner & Bloome Soil Building Conditioner (Buy 3 get 1 free) while supplies last.
Final Week of our Fall Progressive Sale
The moist climate that comes with Autumn makes it the best time of the year to plant – the soil is still warm, allowing roots to continue to grow until the ground freezes. We're celebrating this transition with discounts throughout our nursery on Trees, Shrubs, Vines, Outdoor Pottery and Statuary as well as running a Buy 3 get 1 Free special on soil conditioner. Stop by this week for big savings!
Sept 17-25: 40% OFF: Trees*, Shrubs*, Vines*, Outdoor Pottery & Statuary
Buy 3 get 1 FREE Gardner & Bloome Soil Building Conditioner (while supplies last)
*Select green tagged plants will remain at the 20% through out the sale.
Fall Planting Tips: Soil Conditioning
As we all have discovered for ourselves, Whidbey is mostly made up of clay and gravel–which makes for a tough environment for most plants. So, any time you add organic matter to your beds you are helping enrich the soil and drastically improve conditions! Top mulch a few inches of compost or soil conditioner (like Gardner & Bloome) during the Fall–it will compost down over the Winter and you'll be primed for planting come Spring! This Soil Conditioner helps slow drainage and retain moisture in sandy soil while breaking up clay beds as well.

Time to Plant: Trees, Shrubs, & Vines

Sept 3-9: 20% OFF
Sept 10-16: 30% OFF*
