The staff members at Salmon Creek Nursery know plants. Much of the vast inventory of annuals, perennials, shrubs, and trees are grown onsite at the 45-year-old family-owned nursery, allowing the staff to make sure each plant is healthy from the time it sprouts to the day it's adopted into a new garden. When not tending to the needs of trees, on-staff landscapers are ready and waiting to help customers to create their own inspiring outdoor spaces, filling up backyards or spare bathtubs with all manner of flora. Walking through the lush, meticulously tended nursery feels like strolling through a park. A footbridge carries visitors past a diminutive waterfall, and Japanese maples and fruit trees admire their reflections and elegant limbs in a wide, still pond. The view is decidedly more rustic inside the garden center, where lanterns, baskets, and wooden chairs hang suspended from tree trunks that reach toward the roof, and vintage wheelbarrows teem with everything from plants and potting soil to garden stones etched with inspirational messages.
