I took the ferry across from Seattle to Bainbridge Island last fall to visit Bainbridge Gardens. I had heard so much about the place because of Ann Lovejoy. She is a garden writer that I heard speak at the N.W. Flower and Garden Show in February. She said that she had worked there. It made me want to see it. They do indeed have every thing that a garden center should have. Their selection of plants was good. The gift shop was a lot of fun, lots of unexpected gifts for anyone on your list. The pottery selection was great. I had a nice time browsing through all of the sections of the nursery, it is laid out leisurely with paths taking you all around the many buildings. Their selection of garden art was unique. The ferry ride was beautiful.It was worth the trip!
