Master Gardeners Demonstration Garden


Installed in the mid-1990’s, the mission of the Master Gardener Demonstration Bed is to “maintain a garden bed that is pleasing to view throughout the year, and that is full of easy to care for plants that grow well in our local region, so people will learn about which plants will likely have success within their own gardens” The garden features ‘Great Plant Picks’ which are outstanding selections for the region. Visit any time of year to see what plants are at their best at that particular season. Most plants are labeled. The plants are selected and the area is maintained by the Snohomish County chapter of WSU Master Gardeners.
