Fall is a fun time at Bainbridge Gardens! We have classes in September, a Pumpkin Walk in October, an Open House in November, and wreath-making to finish out the year:

  • Northwest Newcomers, The Living Screen, and a special visit by Robert Cho, bonsai expert, are all proven hit classes. See our Classes & Events section above for more details.
  • The 29th Annual Pumpkin Walk is back! Come in during the month of October to check out the pumpkins on our trail and add your own creations. See more details in the column to the right.
  • Save the date: Our Holiday Open House is Saturday, November 5th. Use the coupon in the newsletter we sent out for 40% off any single, regular-priced item in the store. Check out Donna's new holiday decorations. This year we will have grab bags for the first 100 customers.
  • Wreathmaking starts on November 5th and continues until December 23rd. Book your reservation soon to hold your spot. Certain weekend days are very popular.
  • The After Hours Christmas Shopping Event is back on December 1st, from 6pm-8pm. There will be some great deals on holiday items and some snacks too! Wreath machines will be open late that day.
  • Fall decor is coming in. Pumpkins, straw bales, corn stalks, and more!


The Pumpkin Walk is back for its 29th 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 one 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 1st, 15th, and 29th.
  • Mi Sueno Tacos will be here October 8th and 22nd!

Fall is an underrated time of the year. Yes, Spring is about fresh, bright colors, and boundless optimism about the gardening year ahead, but fall is when you can celebrate what you've done in the garden and prepare for year ahead! Here are some tips for the final months of the year:

  • 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. Come on in, and we'll give you some ideas.
  • Water We know, we know. Although it's cooler, there's still not enough rain to excuse you from watering. Keep watering your plants. The good news is that cooler weather slows down plant growth.
  • 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 coming in and should be planted soon. Garlic is coming 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.

  • Stop and look around. This one is so easy and yet in this fast-paced world we often forget to do it! The PNW has an amazing palette of colors in the fall and against the rich greens of our evergreens the changing colors of our trees really pop. Enjoy it...before the winds and rain come in.
