THANK YOU for GivingBIG on May 15!
Thank you to everyone who gave as part of GiveBIG on May 15! With your help, we were able to raise $5,500 in 24 hours! In addition, we will still receive the stretch match from the Seattle Foundation later this month. Each dollar supports preservation of the Kruckeberg legacy, maintenance of KBG, and expansion of our environmental education programs. Thank you for supporting KBGF during GiveBIG!
Welcome to the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden
The Kruckeberg Botanic Garden is a public garden containing a unique blend of Pacific Northwest native plants and unusual exotics in a naturalistic, wooded setting. Located in Shoreline, Washington, the Garden was founded in 1958 by Dr. Arthur Kruckeberg and his wife Mareen, who amassed the plant collection over 50 years in the property surrounding their home.
The Garden is now owned by the City of Shoreline and operated by the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden Foundation (KBGF), a nonprofit organization. The on-site MsK Rare and Native Plant Nursery carries native plants and hardy exotics that are well suited for a Northwest garden. Explore our site to learn about what the Garden has to offer!
Mother's Day Plant Sale and Open House - May 10-12, 2013
Thank you to everyone who joined us at MsK Nursery for our 26th Annual Mother's Day Plant Sale and Open House.
We had excellent turnout and wonderful weather. Stay tuned to our Facebook page for more photos of the event!
MsK Nursery at the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden sustains the legacy of Garden co-founder and renowned horticulturist Mareen Kruckeberg. Most plants are propagated from seeds or cuttings from the Garden. MsK Nursery specializes in native plants from around the Pacific Northwest and select exotics from the Garden’s collection. The vegetation of the Northwest is diverse and beautiful, and MsK Nursery strives to make a large selection of these plants available to the public. The Nursery is operated by the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden Foundation, and all proceeds from Nursery sales support the Foundation.

Dr. Kruckeberg: In His Own Words
Dr. Kruckeberg, co-founder of the Garden, turns 93 in 2013. The City of Shoreline and the board of the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden Foundation wanted to honor “Dr. K," as he’s affectionately known, by creating a video “In His Own Words," as only he can be.
