Congratulations to Sarah Bice, the winner of the garden tour tickets! Sarah let us know Potentilla is her favorite water-wise plant.
The Portland Water Bureau is proud to sponsor the 12th Annual Designers Garden Tour on Saturday, June 18, 2016!
Hosted by the Association of Northwest Landscape Designers (ANLD), this self-guided tour allows visitors to experience beautiful eastside gardens, meet local landscape designers, take in original art, and gather landscaping ideas.
This year there are seven exquisitely designed gardens to visit. From stunning personal garden retreats to gardens filled with incredible plant collections to finely crafted hardscapes and garden décor, there is something for everyone.
Talk with local experts about the water-wise plant options you see along the tour. You’ll find that saving water is beautiful! When the right plant is in the right place, everyone is happy! The Portland Water Bureau will have a table nestled in one of the water-efficient gardens on the tour.
This year the Portland Water Bureau has two ANLD Garden Tour tickets to give away!
To win a tour for two, simply comment on this post with your favorite water-wise plant. We’ll randomly choose from everyone who submits a comment. Winners will be contacted by June 1, 2016.
Tickets are also available at Al’s Garden Center, Garden Fever, Portland Nursery, The Gardener’s Choice Garden Center, and online at www.anld.com.
