Kirkland invites locals to stock up on veggies, tomatoes, bedding plants, container plants, perennials and small shrubs just in time to plant for Mother’s Day.

Lake Washington Institute of Technology (LWTech) is hosting its annual Spring Plant Sale on April 27 and 28, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at LWIT Environmental Horticulture, 11605 132nd Ave. NE, in the West parking lot. The sale will also be held on May 4 and 5 for those who want more.

All proceeds of the sale directly support the LWTech Environmental Horticulture program.

LWTech Environmental Horticulture students grow hundreds of beautiful plants in greenhouses as part of their education. These include fuchsia baskets, impatiens, snapdragons, dahlias and much more. They also have vegetables and herbs that grow exceptionally well in our Pacific Northwest climate.

For more information, visit the Spring Plant Sale webpage. Don’t miss this big event.
