    Adam Doppelt - My family loves Swansons and we go there several times a year. They put on a great show for the kids. Before Halloween we bring the kids for the little hay maze. During the holidays we visit for Curly the camel, the reindeer, Santa, and the train set. It has a special place in our family history due to all the photos we've taken. Fun!
    Laura - Fantastic professionals. I've come here with sad little plant leaves trying to diagnose what the heck is going on with my plants. The team is super helpful at figuring out the problem and giving me reasonable solutions. Don't forget their #askswanson Twitter hashtag so you can ask questions via Twitter.
    Carly Kiser - Incredibly knowledgable and helpful on all things from questions to garden inspiration. Their cafe and gift shop are wonderful, and a great place to visit. We are there almost every weekend with our small children!

    Liz Pearce - Great selection of indoor & outdoor plants, friendly & helpful staff, and a sweet gift shop to boot.
    Annette Kraus - This is my favorite shop and nursery in the city of Seattle. I have been coming to this store for all my garden and gifts for 27 years. The staff is friendly, knowledgable and I always come away a happy, informed customer about any or all my gardening needs. The gift shop buyer knows what is on-trend and keeps an eclectic array of home decor and accessories to please most anyone. It is truly a gem!!
    Lawrence Lerner - Good selection, knowledgeable and available staff. Good seasonal classes.

    Laura - They have an INCREDIBLE assortment of plants and other items to make your home and garden beautiful. They might just have the best outdoor planter options around.
  • 18528 Aurora Ave N, Shoreline
    Amy Pennington - Good for anyone on the north end. I find their delivered bulk products to be expensive, but if you're in a pinch, they are a good option. The store also has supplies for ponds/fountains if you have any built into your landscape.
  • 5275 California Ave SW, Seattle
    Holli Margell - A local gem of a shop full of indoor and outdoor plants, tools, soil, and helpful staff who can help you find something or make suggestions for your planting needs.

  • 1351 Olive Way, Seattle
    Flora Ku - Super cute little plant shop. It's a bit on the pricier side, but I love to just roam and take pictures. It's close to my apartment and a great option if you don't have a car to get to other cheaper nurseries when you want a plant pick-me-up!
  • 306 NW 84th St, Seattle • Greenwood
    Tom Laramee - I've now done two bamboo installations and Stan helped me hook up some really beautiful bamboo, along with the requisite root barriers. (The nursery is also a great place to play hide and seek if you have young children).

Does anyone know if Honeycrisp and Fuji apple trees will pollenate each other?

Marston Gould That’s great. Honey bees and bumbles typically won’t pollinate trees. Mason and American bees will. Masons are usually spring bees. So most are already moving back into hibernation. Remember to give them both a water and mud source.
Susan Stocker They do pollinate each other. Some growers recommending planting a Crab Apple tree in between apple trees as bees love them and it helps pollination all around. Here's a cool link that you can check for all sorts of information on fruit trees
Ryan Bruss Thank you @susanstocker!!! That's a super helpful resource.
