Tickets for the 16th annual Clallam County Master Gardener's Home Garden Tour on June 27 are available.
The Petals and Pathways tour will highlight seven Sequim area gardens, according to Jan Keithley, Garden Tour chairman. They include rare and unusual plants, water features, whimsical accents and spectacular views.
Keithley said the garden settings range from wooded hillsides to the curve of the Dungeness River to the bluffs of the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
"Each one demonstrates gardening techniques designed to address the special challenges of their settings and showcases the unique style and talents of the home-owner," she said.
Tickets cost $15 at Airport Garden Center, Gross's Nursery and Florist, The Greenhouse, Cedarbrook Lavender and Herb Farm, Henery's Garden Center in Sequim and Port Townsend, McComb Gardens, Over the Fence, Sunshine Herb and Lavender Farm, Sunny Farms Farm Store, Vision Landscape Nursery, the Sequim Visitor's Information Center and the chambers of commerce, the Clallam County Extension Office, Master Gardener plant clinics and from Master Gardener volunteers. They also will be on sale at the Sequim Open Aire Market on June 13 and June 20.
Tickets will cost $20 the day of the tour.
Keithley said the Home Garden Tour funds local educational programs and maintains the demonstration gardens, which are open and free to the public. The gardens include the well-established Woodcock Gardens, the Olympic Peninsula Demonstration Garden being developed near Carrie Blake Park and the vegetable garden at Robin Hill Farm Park, which supplies fresh vegetables to the Salvation Army soup kitchen in Port Angeles.
Clallam County Master Gardeners, a cooperative program between Washington State University and Clallam County, provides up-to-date information on sustainable gardening practices.
