FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Friday, May 25, 2007

New book celebrates Bellevue Botanical Garden

In its relatively brief 15-year existence, the Bellevue Botanical Garden has already become an Eastside institution. Visitors can see nine different “gardens within the garden,” and annual events such as Garden D’Lights and Pops in the Park are always popular.

Now the Garden, located at Wilburton Hill Park, has been captured in a new 112-page book authored by noted northwest writer and horticultural expert Marty Wingate. With more than 160 dazzling images by professional and amateur photographers, “The Bellevue Botanical Garden, Celebrating the First 15 Years” is a lush and colorful account of a local, world-class treasure. 

In addition to being a regular contributor to local and national gardening magazines, Wingate writes a weekly gardening feature for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. Other recently published books include “The Big Book of Northwest Perennials” and “Big Ideas for Northwest Small Gardens.”

Published by the Bellevue Botanical Garden Society, “Celebrating the First 15 Years” ($19.95 plus $5.05 tax and shipping) will be available starting June 16, after an anniversary celebration, 1 to 4 p.m. at the Garden. The book can be purchased at the Garden’s Trillium Gift Shop, online from the Garden website or by phone at 425-451-3755.
