The Botanical Garden is open to the public from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The entrance is on the corner of Hilgard and Le Conte Avenues. It’s a great outlet for the whole family with many exotic plants to ogle, especially in the cactus and succulent section. There are benches next to a large pond where you can sit and have lunch a few feet away from what is probably the biggest ongoing convention of turtles — who sun themselves unabashedly on the pond’s edge – for miles around. You can even brin... Jun 19, 2020

A city's secret weapon: flowers - Kitsap Sun
If you’ve got the itch for more established plants, many local nurseries, like Bremerton City Nursery, Valley Nursery, and Rodgers Country Nursery are delivering. While I’m not a gardening guru by any means, here are some questions to ask to get started:Where’s the sun? This is the big question that dictates what goes where. Fruits and vegetables generally like hot evening sun from the west. I’ve had success growing tomatoes on the west side of a fence where they only get light for the hotter half of the day, and I’ve had success with strawberries and blueberries under a big tree where they only get direct sunlight for the coolest three hours and the hottest three hours of the day. What “rooms” do you want outside? Most gardens are broken into different area with different purposes by hedges, low walls, swales of groundcover, or different surfaces. Examples of outdoor “rooms” could include a purpose-built outdoor dining area, grill area, flower garden, vegetable garden, or lawn. Breaking up your yard gives more “destinations” within your own property - something suddenly very important.How do you feel about lawns? Is maintaining a lawn a labor of love for you, or just something you do by default? I think lawns have their place, it just isn’t every place: my yard has a dedicated grassy “play area” for picnics and pets, but it’s surrounded by low-maintenance shrubs that I find more rewarding. Slowly but surely, I’m replacing my front lawn entirely with strawberries. Personally, I much prefer pruning, mulching, and harvesting to mowing and fertilizing. That said, a well-manicured lawn can be glorious, so to each their own. Some people find mowing to be a really zen thing. If you hate mowing, now’s a good time to tear the grass up and replace it with a more rewarding, low-maintenance landscape. Whatever you do, do it on purpose. Do it because you want to do it, not because you assume it’s the only way.What do you eat? Victory Gardens are making a comeback. Probably more of a pleasant distraction than a necessary survival tactic, watching the progress of my vegetables every day gives me a reason to get out of the house. Perennial berry bushes like blueberries are generally pretty low-risk, high-reward, and I think our native Evergreen Huckleberry is one of the most underrated plants there is. If you’re unsure what kind of plants would actually be useful in your kitchen, try a salsa garden with tomatoes, peppers, and cilantro. Googling companion plants always helps.Japanese gardening principles can be applied to any kind of garden. A good Japanese garden feels ancient, with half-submerged rocks and moss everywhere. They also make good use of conifer textures, with maples providing a bright contrast to a muted evergreen backdrop. Many Pacific Northwest natives are mainstays of the Japanese garden, which uses plants and stone to create miniature landscapes -- perfect for a small city lot. In this incredibly weird time in human history, stopping to smell the roses takes our minds off worries and into the present -- things we can see, touch, taste, smell. Working in my garden -- my imperfect, messy garden -- has been good for me in a way few other things have. I love the random goodwill of complimenting strangers on their yards -- from a distance, of course, and not touching anything.Kevin Walthall is a Bremerton resident and a regular contributor to the Kitsap Sun.
