Washington’s wackiest gardener recently visited Freeland Ace.

Ciscoe Morris was in town for a couple of hours for a book signing and gardening tips. Freeland Ace won the visit through a KIRO radio raffle drawing.

“As soon as he came through the front doors, he was bombarded with people asking questions,” said Freeland Ace manager Kari Gerow. “He was very gracious and answered them all as he made his way to the Garden Center.”

Morris is locally famous for his “Gardening with Ciscoe” weekend segment on KING 5 with Meeghan Black, during which he gives seasonal gardening tips.

At Freeland Ace on Aug. 11, Morris answered questions, told stories about his gardening and gave plants away as a reward for correct gardening trivia. Gerow said more than 150 people attended the event.

“Ciscoe was funny, informative and very interesting,” she said.

It was Morris’ second appearance on South Whidbey this summer. In June, he was on the South End at Bayview Farm and Garden, from where he broadcast his radio show.
