Lots of fun events are coming up in the fall.

I will post more pictures of Ireland soon but here is one to whet your appetite. Besides that, I will answer all of your garden questions. Thanks to all the people that hosted for me while I was away: Nita-Jo Rountree, Marianne Binetti, and Marty Wingate.

Plant Amnesty 30 Year Celebration

Recent Interview on

Carolyn Ossorio author, journalist, podcast host and a weekend anchor at KIRO Radio, recently interviewed me for a podcast. That's my dog Fred in the background but wait until you see the special guest!

Rain gardens

KING5 recently teamed up with 12,000 Rain Gardens. Rain gardens are a smart and proven way of using beautiful landscaping to: beautify and improve homes and neighborhoods, reduce flooding, clean our waterways, protect our precious natural habitats and save millions of dollars in pollution clean-up and massive utility construction projects. Check out their Resource Page, in particular the WSU Rain Garden Handbook for Western Washington.

You can find rain garden design and construction tips on the DIY Network, part of HGTV. The rain gardens shown were constructed in the Western Washington cities of Gig Harbor, Tacoma, Puyallup, Seattle and Kirkland.

New Day Northwest: Next appearance October 23

I am on New Day Northwest most Every Other Monday. Do you have a question or are you just curious about something around the garden? Submit your dilemma for consideration for a "Ciscoe Save Me" segment. Send an email (with pictures if possible) to and your question might make it on T.V.
