Put on Those Garden Clogs and Join the SPU Queen Anne Garden Tour

, Seattle Pacific University kicks off a full day of gardening inspiration at the inaugural SPU Queen Anne Garden Tour.

While participants linger over coffee and muffins, Seattle Post-Intelligencer garden columnist and horticulture expert Marianne Binetti will begin the day with the lecture, “Shortcuts to a Show Garden.” SPU’s head gardener, Jeff Daley, will follow with a tour of the University’s award-winning landscapes, perennial borders, ornamental grass garden and butterfly garden. In the afternoon, participants have the rare chance to explore five select residential gardens on Queen Anne Hill while enjoying performances by student musicians.

Tickets are $12 per person and can be ordered by calling 206/281-2100. After May 1, tickets will be available at Ravenna Gardens (Queen Anne and University Village stores) and at Fremont Gardens.
