An exciting week in the Garden concludes

ECplantmv-11.jpgLast week was spent removing several large shrubs and small trees from the Garden’s future parking area. These plants, each weighing several hundred pounds, all found a new home in the Garden. What an exciting week!

Luckily, the City of Shoreline hired an Earthcorps crew to help with this hard work. Despite unpredictable weather, which included hail, lightening, and monsoon-like rain, they did a great job with great enthusiasm.

The Japanese umbrella pine (Sciadopitys verticillata), royal azalea (Rhododendron schilpenbachii), Shasta red fir (Abies magnifica v.shastensis), andSanta Lucia fir (Abies bracteata) were moved to the meadow. Our Tsuga canadensis ‘Hussiwas planted next to our large giant sequoia.

The Earthcorps crew also dug and prepared the very large Rhododendron auriculatum shrubs for moving later in the year.

Things are quite muddy after all the rain, but the plants are now settled into their new homes. Come visit them this spring!
