Master Gardener Volunteers will have many common and not-so-common annual and perennial plants for sale on May 17.

Are you one of those people who loves to grow your own vegetables but you'd really like to have them sooner rather than later? In addition to planting seeds, start your garden with transplants of many of your favorite vegetables. The vegetable section at the 16th Annual Montgomery County Master Gardener Plant Sale has expanded its vegetable offerings from the traditional peppers and tomatoes (and there will be many of those) to include many of your favorites.

Or possibly you are looking for that new perennial to fill a drab space. Maybe you want that plant you remember your Grandmother tending to so devotedly. There will be many unique plants as well as old favorites at the sale.

The plant sale is held on the grounds of the Montgomery County 4-H Center, 1015 Bridge Rd. (Rt. 113), Collegeville, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Come on out and try some of the vegetable transplants, as well as other wonderful plants from our wide variety of selections.

This year's theme is 'Gotta Bee In Your Bonnet?' and the Master Gardeners will be promoting the importance of native plants to attract pollinators. Information will be available to help you find the right plants for the right spaces in your garden to optimize not only beauty, but also attract species of important pollinators to create healthy landscapes.
