 Rent Mason Bees at Christianson’s Nursery


Rent Mason Bees is a western Washington-based company that rents bees to backyard gardeners and orchardists. It is our second year as an official pick up and drop off location! We are excited to work again with such a great company whose passion has led them to this business.

RentMasonBees.com supplies pollination kits which contain safe, local bees to provide a sustainable and economical solution for gardeners, fruit growers and farmers. Rent your kit at the Nursery on Thursday, March 29 and learn how easy it is to start your own backyard beekeeping!

When your pollination needs have been met at the end of the season, you simply return the kits to the Nursery on Thursday, June 7, and RentMasonBees.com will do the post care, cleaning, and storage of the bees for the dormant season.

Want to extend your pollination season? Pick up a Leafcutter Bee Kit the same day you return your Mason Bee Kit, then simply drop it off again on Thursday, September 6.

Through renting their bees, your spring and summer crops are pollinated, and you help boost native bee populations while indirectly supporting the production of food that will end up in our grocery stores.

Pre-order your kits today at www.RentMasonBees.com

Christianson’s Nursery



Christianson’s Schoolhouse is a poetic venue for your garden wedding.  Intimate and elegant, the artfully restored Meadow Schoolhouse accommodates ceremonies with up to 50 seated guests and is the oldest remaining one room schoolhouse in Northwest Washington.

The English-styled Rose Garden offers a secondary ceremony site and accommodates up to 150 guests outdoors amidst a sweeping grass lawn lined with perennials, boxwood and espaliered apple hedges while surrounded by views of Mount Baker and the panoramic farmland of Skagit Valley.

Celebrate with your bridal party in our quaint, vintage-styled Bridal Cottage equipped with vanity, outlets, mirrors, “Jill” access to the restroom and our (summer of 2018) Groom’s Quarters just steps away from the Schoolhouse.
