For the ultimate garden geek: The Miller Library Book Sale!!!

Each time I pass by the library at work this week, I see an ever growing stack of books in the conference room and librarian Martha Ferguson diligently sorting through each title to place it in its proper category.

As our hort community is known for its never-ending plant sales just about every weekend from now on, this is pretty much the only garden book sale in our region and it amazes me each year to see the remarkable selection of books they have available! From bulbs, vegetable gardening, perennials, landscape design, and specific genera of plants, the Garden Lover's Book Sale totally has something for the green thumb in all of us and you can find some really great deals.


From the Miller Library website:

What: A used book sale fund raiser and all around FUN TIME!

Where: In the Merrill Hall Commons, Center for Urban Horticulture, 3501 NE 41st St., Seattle, WA, 98195. Map.

Why: to RAISE MONEY to buy new books by selling donated books that are not needed because the library already owns a copy.

When: The wine and cheese PREVIEW PARTY is Friday, April 2 from 5 - 8pm; tickets cost $20 in advance. The free book sale is Saturday, April 3 from 9am to 3pm

To buy Preview Party ticket call 206-543-0415; Visa & Master card accepted.

  1. I got so much great stuff, including Art Kruckeberg's native plants book. Then my volunteer job this week was to box up the unsold books, which meant of course I had to "rescue" a few more, including a Christopher Lloyd one about Great Dixter. It's expensive being a volunteer sometimes!
