Marianne will share growing tips like how to protect plants during a heat wave and how to use those that are more drought resistant. She’ll delve into how to use the proper tools for the job and appropriate body mechanics to avoid injury while gardening. Marianne will also have some fun ideas to add whimsy and joy to your outdoor space.

Marianne has a degree in Horticulture from Washington State University, has written or co-written ten garden books, writes a syndicated weekly garden column that runs in several newspapers including the Daily Olympian and Tacoma News Tribune and has appeared on HGTV and as a radio and television host. This February she will return to the Northwest Flower and Garden Show in Seattle as emcee for the popular “Container Wars” competition every day of the show. She and her husband Joe lead garden tours around the world. This May you are invited to join her to experience the Islands of New England tour. Visit her website at for more information.
