The Penn State Extension Master Gardeners of Lebanon County’s annual Plant Sale and Garden Faire is happening on Saturday, May 4, at the Lebanon Expo Center & Fairgrounds on Rocherty Road.

The sale runs rain or shine from 8 a.m. to noon at the Brightbill Barn, to the left of the main entrance, and will feature more than 5,000 plants, including perennials, natives, herbs, and hard-to-find annuals. The plants for sale will have been hand-selected by Penn State-trained master gardeners.

This year’s theme is the “Right Three P’s: Right Plant, Right Place, Right Practice,” to help gardeners choose the proper plant species, location, and techniques to ensure that each plant flourishes.

The selection includes over 90 annual flower, foliage, and grass Proven Winners varieties, as well as unique plant combinations designed for cut-flower gardens and patios and native plants that are critical to maintaining biodiversity and pollinators from bees to butterflies.. Master gardeners will be on hand to help with plant selection and provide gardening advice about planting and harvesting.

New this year is a Companion Planting Display showcasing the benefits of planting annual and perennial flowers and herbs to protect vegetables from insect pests while attracting pollinators and beneficial insects. The “Green Elephant” area will include donated plants from master gardeners’ gardens as well as gently used tools. Several vendors will also have horticultural items for sale.

Come early for the best selection and bring cash or check for a quicker check out. Credit cards will be accepted.

All proceeds from the event will benefit future programs and projects of the Penn State Extension Master Gardeners of Lebanon County.
