Video: Crowd blooms for Ciscoe at Village Green Perennial Nursery

April 15, 2012 at 7:11 pm | In Gardening, West Seattle news | 3 Comments

Northwest gardening guru/broadcast personality/author Ciscoe Morris drew more than 100 people to Village Green Perennial Nursery (WSB sponsor) this afternoon, which meant big smiles all around, especially for him and Village Green’s Vera Johnson:

In our 8-minute clip below, Vera introduces him by explaining how they met, and then after showing off prizes he planned to give away during his talk, he explained his trademark phrase “Oh-la-la”:

The quiz questions that netted attendees the prizes, by the way, centered on hummingbirds. We’ll have video of his entire talk linked on partner site White Center Now later; one major topic, the trouble these past three winters have caused with many Northwest gardens, including his own.

  2. What a great way to kick off spring…a visit from Cisco Morris. For those of you who could not be here, check out the video about the origin of “Oh-la-la!”, and you’ll get a glimpse of the time we spent with a great fellow plant lover! Cisco’s enthusiasm and ease of attitude with plants is such an inspiration to anyone who struggles with the idea that a garden of their own is out of reach, Your very own outdoor space truly is at the tips of your fingers,right in your own backyard.
