Brodhead Watershed Assn. Native Plant Sale June 9-10 In Monroe County

Calling all gardeners to the Brodhead Watershed Association’s annual Native Plant Sale, where beautiful and environmentally responsible flowers and shrubs will be sold.
The popular annual sale will be held Friday and Saturday, June 9-10, at Pocono Township Fire Company’s carnival building on Route 611, Tannersville, Monroe County.
The Friday sale, held 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., is for members only. (Members receive a 10 percent discount; new members can sign up at the sale.) Saturday’s sale will run 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
“This will be an exciting sale because we have 65 different perennials to offer,” said Deb Mattie of Paradise Township, plant sale organizer.
Almost every gardener in the Poconos seeks out deer-resistant plants, and the BWA won’t disappoint them. There will be 40 varieties from which to choose.
“A large majority of the plants are deer resistant and will be labeled as such,” Mattie said. “Also, plants for pollinators and butterflies will be labeled.”
Also new this year: bigger pot sizes.
“So think bigger and better,” said Mattie. “There will be something for everyone regardless of what kind of garden you have – full sun, part shade, shade, dry or wet.”
BWA thanks the sponsors of the Native Plant Sale: Bolock Funeral Home & Crematory, Strauser Nature's Helpers, Desaki Restaurant, Colonial Used Auto Sales, Lansdowne Insurance Agency, Pocono Lawn & Landscape, Frogtown Chophouse and Retro Fitness. Additional support was provided by plant sale "friends" Vincent's Deli & Catering, Resort Beverage and The Cook's Corner.
