Donating to the nursery: The best time for gardeners to drop off
plants at the nursery is during public hours listed above. That’s
because the gate to the nursery on Arboretum Drive is open, and
the volunteers are on hand to help unload, and the plants can be
potted up promptly. (Driving past the main gate on Arboretum Drive
during the nursery’s public hours is permissible for unloading

STFS brings together amateur growers—beginners to experts—from the Greater Seattle area who share an interest in growing fruit: trees, berries, kiwis, grapes, and more. They offer information on adapted varieties, up-to-the-minute growing techniques, and share their own experiences growing fruit. They are also a chapter of the Western Cascade Fruit Society.
