Whimsical art in Tina Dixon's Bothell Garden

If you have never had the opportunity to visit award-winning container garden designer Tina Dixon’s garden in Bothell, now is your chance to do so, and to help a valuable cause at the same time. Tina rarely opens her garden to the public, but is doing so this weekend to suppport a worthwhile cause. Tina and her husband, firefighter Paul Stredson, have long supported Hopelink, a non-profit organization that has supported homeless and low income families and children, seniors and people with disabilities in King County since 1971.

Tina’s garden won the coveted ‘Golden Trowel’ Award from Garden Design magazine and has also been featured in Seattle Homes & Lifestyles, Sunset, and on the cover of the Seattle Times’ Pacific Northwest magazine.  I often carpool with Tina to local horticulture lectures, and when I pick her up I always try to arrive early, to greet her two exuberant golden retrievers, and sneak a peek at her garden. I never tire of seeing its signature blue pots brimming with incredible plant combinations, borders overflowing with color, texture and bold foliage, and garden art placed to perfection.

Seattle Times garden writer Val Easton says “From pots and unusual plants, to art and brilliant color, this very personal garden is a joy and an inspiration. Don’t miss the chance to see Tina’s artful garden.”  Tickets are $50 per person for the tour, which is Sunday, August 15 from noon to 5:00 pm.  For more information or to purchase tickets go to or call 425-897-3703.
