    Cannot say enough positive things about S Seattle College plant sale…second time back. Great selection, good prices, supports students, very friendly staff, and many intrepid gardeners. Could not get any better–but do avoid free compost time slots if you are just getting plants! 

Sorry, comment time is over.
