Email from Brenda Cunningham:

You may have noticed that the Display Gardens at the WSU Research and Extension Center are currently closed to public access due to concerns about COVID-19 and the health of visitors and volunteers.

In the spring we hosted a successful plant sale by accepting orders for plants via email and scheduling appointments for curbside pickup of the plants at the garden entrance. Feedback from that event was very positive and we are going to try to do that again, with some improvements at the back end of the operation. We are taking measures to ensure your safety and the safety of our volunteers, while providing you with the opportunity to purchase from a great selection of native trees, shrubs and flowers. 

Proceeds from the sale are important for our chapter's ability to provide scholarships, help local organizations with restoration of habitat and support for the Washington Native Plant Society's many wonderful programs. 

On September 21, I will send out another notice which will include a link to an order form (Excel format). We will accept orders starting at noon on the 21st. Once we have 150 orders we will close the sale since we need time to schedule the curbside pickups.

If you would like to place an order, please download the form (it will be updated daily to reflect the inventory), fill it out on your computer and save it. Then send it back to me via email. I will process the orders in which they are received and send you a confirmation. For those who cannot use an Excel document we have a volunteer available to fill out the form for you over the phone. When you are ready to order, please let me know and I will have that person give you a call.

I will provide you with confirmation of the order and detailed instructions for picking up the plants in a safe manner. Plant pickup will take place at the entrance to the display gardens west of Mount Vernon on October 2 and 3. However, the gardens will not be open to the public at that time, nor will the facilities associated with the WSU Campus be available. 

I hope this notice finds you safe and healthy,
Brenda Cunningham, Garden Manager

This plant list is preliminary, but very close to the final list. The order form will be updated daily to reflect remaining inventory.

*There may be several minor changes between this and the final order form. We ask that you limit your purchase of each species to 3 plants so that more people can purchase the popular species. In your email order please indicate if you would like to buy more of a species and I am happy to let you know at the end of the sale period if we have any left for purchase.
