Garden Party

Each year we honor our volunteers and garden tour hosts, and celebrate Edmonds in Bloom activities that beautify our community. Everyone is invited to attend!

A special guest speaker in 2018

Karen Chapman, Le Jardinet

Born in England, Karen grew up with a trowel in her hand.

After moving to the Pacific Northwest in 1996 she joined Molbak’s Garden & Home as a garden plant specialist before establishing Le Jardinet in 2006. Whilst initially specializing in custom container gardens, Karen now applies that same attention to detail by designing functional and artistic landscapes. Her designs have been featured in many prestigious publications, including Fine Gardening, Sunset and Better Homes & Gardens.

She is co-author of two books: Gardening with Foliage First and the award-winning Fine Foliage.  Karen also writes inspirational design articles on two blogs and is a regular contributor to several digital and print publications. As an instructor for the online community Craftsy, Karen teaches two garden design courses including Gorgeous Garden Design; Foliage & Focal Points that was mostly filmed in her own 5 acre garden in Duvall, WA.

Whether on the stage, television or radio Karen’s aim is always to inspire, educate and share the fun of gardening with her audience.
