Bare Root Season is Here!

January through March is bare root season at Christianson’s and that means big savings on trees, plants, and shrubs for your garden, including fruit, flowering and shade trees, hydrangeas, lilacs, cane fruit and some herbaceous edibles such as strawberries, asparagus and rhubarb.

To plant; dig a hole twice the diameter of the root system and no deeper than its length. Make sure the graft union, down at the base of the stem, is several inches above the soil.  Break up and loosen the soil before replacing it around the roots.

Ask one of our Nursery experts about how to properly condition and plant a bare root tree or shrub while you’re here.

Meadow Schoolhouse & Garden Wedding   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.

New!  Due to many requests, we are now including the Greenhouse as an option to rent alongside summer weddings, or (if requested) in lieu of the Garden during the winter months. Please see pricing below.

Celebrate with your bridal party in our quaint, vintage-styled Bridal Cottage equipped with vanity, outlets, mirrors, “Jill” access to the restroom and our Changing Quarters for grooms and partners in the Grainery is just steps away from the Schoolhouse.

Accessories in the Schoolhouse include 2 8-foot tables, 4 wooden benches, an antique podium, and period stationary furniture.  Additional vintage rental accessories available upon request.
