Spokane in Bloom garden tour

Spokane in Bloom garden tourWho loves going on garden tours? After all, they are a great opportunity to stroll through some of the area’s finest gardens, right? The Spokane in Bloom Garden Tour is next Saturday, June 17th, and features 7 gardens on Spokane’s north side.

That’s the subject of my garden column today and here is a link to it: Annual Spokane in Bloom tour features North Side gardens.

I had the pleasure of visiting Janie and Jim Edwards’ home near Whitworth University. Their garden is truly a delight, and if you go on the tour, be sure to check out the overview of it from their back deck. It’s stunning!

I have included a few photos from their garden at the bottom of this post so have a look. Remember that you can click on any of the photos to view a larger image.

The tour, which is sponsored by the hardworking Inland Empire Gardeners, will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Each garden will host vendors and musicians. Tickets can be purchased for $10 at most gardens the day of the tour, or ahead of time on The Inland Empire Gardeners’ website at tieg.org, or at the following Spokane nurseries:

  • Blue Moon Garden & Nursery, 1732 S. Inland Empire Way
  • Gibson’s Nursery, 1401 S. Pines Rd
  • Judy’s Enchanted Garden, 2628 W. Northwest Blvd.
  • Northwest Seed & Pet, 7302 N. Division St. and 2422 E. Sprague Ave.
  • Tower Perennial Gardens, 4010 E. Jamieson Rd.
