The Penn State Extension Master Gardeners annual plant sale will be held in May. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, it will be done a bit differently this year, and all floral enthusiasts are encouraged to support the annual fundraiser.
A carefully selected offering of quality perennials, shrubs, hanging baskets, hanging patio tomato baskets and house plants will be available. Buyers simply need to request and browse the new catalog, place an order, and pre-arrange for drive-through pick up on Saturday, May 15 between 9 am and 3 pm at the Penn State Extension Office parking lot, 88 Chenango Street in Montrose.
“Once we have your order and your contact information, we will arrange a specific pickup time for you,” noted Susquehanna County Master Gardner co-coordinator Kimberly Grace. The deadline to order is May 7. “We will be offering horticultural handouts on the plant sale offerings as well as container gardening instructions.” Links to free webinars, Learn Now videos and Hotline contact information will also be provided.
To request a catalog, interested readers may contact the Penn State Master Gardeners at 570-666-9003, email: firstname.lastname@example.org or message them on Facebook at Penn State Ext Master Gardeners of Susquehanna County, PA
“Then mail in your order, and we’ll see you on Saturday, May 15,” said Grace.
Proceeds help the Penn State Extension Master Gardeners fund educational gardening programs for residents throughout the county. Programs are held at Salt Springs, Harford Fair, countywide Senior Centers, Montrose Area Adult School, local Garden Clubs presentations and at an array of demonstration gardens.
