Fall/Winter hours start October 1. Mon-Sat 9:00am-5:30pm, Sun 10:00am-4:00pm


We love fall. Fall is about enjoying the effort you put into your garden. Harvesting fruits. Admiring the growth of your plants. It's also about getting ready for next year. Planting onions and garlic. Preparing your soil. Planting trees and shrubs so they come out stronger in the spring.

  • Harvest Don't forget to harvest your vegetables and fruits when they are at their peak. Enjoy the work you've done to get fresh fruits and veggies! Oh, and if you have a few tomatoes that don't quite get ripe, well, fried green tomatoes are really quite delicious!
  • Refresh Add some fresh color to your garden. Pansies, mums, and ornamental cabbage are in, and consider adding some textures to your containers, such as wintergreen or grasses. And rudbeckia, anemone, joey ptilotus, and asters are blooming now.
  • Plant Fall is great time to plant trees and shrubs. The cooler weather is less stressful on many plants, and getting them in the ground now gives their root systems a chance to establish themselves. Spring bulbs (daffodils, tulips, crocus, et al) are in and should be planted soon. Garlic is in and ready to go into the ground!
  • Prepare Your lawn, that is. Mid-September through mid-October is a great time to fertilize, over-seed, and mulch. The ground is still warm (NW grass seed germinates when the ground is 55F or warmer) and the rains naturally keep the ground moist.

Open now through the month of October.

The Pumpkin Walk is back for its 30th year (wow)! If you're not familiar with it, The Pumpkin Walk is a family-friendly event that goes on throughout October.

Our trail through the woods has hundreds of decorated pumpkins and larger vignettes. In addition there are kid-friendly photo areas and fun stuff for the little ones.

Much of the success of the Pumpkin Walk is due to contributions by our customers! Last year, customers added well over 400 hundred pumpkins to our trail!

The Pumpkin Walk is free. We do accept donations to the Bainbridge Island Boys and Girls Club. This event benefits our local club.

Every Saturday, we will have a food truck!

  • Battle Point BBQ will be here October 7st, 14th, and 28th.
  • Sauced will be here October 21st.
  • In addition, Sweet Dahlia will be here on Sunday mornings (Oct 8th, 15th, and 22nd) to provide coffee and hand-dipped donuts!
