The sale will be held from 8 a.m. to noon in a new, bigger location on the fairgrounds campus, within the 100-foot by 75-foot Brightbill Arena.
Held annually by the Penn State Extension Master Gardeners of Lebanon County, the plant sale features annuals, perennials, native plants, tomatoes, peppers, and herbs.

More than a dozen different tomatoes varieties will also be available, including five types of beefsteak tomatoes, seven medium-size tomatoes, six types of cherry tomatoes, and one paste tomato. More than a dozen different pepper varieties will be available as well, suitable for any palette, with selections in sweet, mild to moderately hot, and hot.
