Days 1 + 2
Monday, June 26-Tuesday, June 27, 2023
The 2023 Slow Flowers Summit will be held at Bellevue Botanical Garden in Bellevue, Washington. The 53-acre Gardens include several smaller gardens - each with its own focus and character. A highlight for our attendees is the Perennial Border. Renowned for year-round dramatic displays, the perennial border is an example of a distinctively American-style mixed border and is a living demonstration of what works best in Northwest gardens.
You'll revel in thousands of perennials, shrubs, bulbs, evergreens, and trees that provide color and beauty year-round. This is the largest public perennial garden in the country maintained entirely by volunteers. The Northwest Perennial Alliance created and maintains this award-winning garden.
On South Orcas Street in Seattle, there's a hub for all things flowers where two major wholesale outlets share the floor of a huge warehouse embellished in floral murals, Located side-by-side, Seattle Wholesale Growers Market and the Seattle branch of Mayesh Wholesale Florist are the area's go-to sources for the entire floral marketplace.
The two operations are jointly hosting a private, closing day event for Slow Flowers Summit guests.
Our guests are invited to a floral open house to tour the two facilities, check out floral displays, peek in the coolers, meet local growers who supply their flowers here, and more!
Enjoy refreshments, including cocktails and mocktails, and light bites, while networking and connecting. And be prepared to shop for flowers! The staffs at SWGMC and Mayesh will be happy to ring you up and package flowers for your drive or flight home!
