PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - Say, are there any more of those cool little plant sales going on this weekend? Why, yes, there are!

Penn State’s 15th Annual Montgomery County Master Gardener Plant Sale is Saturday from 9 to 2 with loads of fresh vegetables ready to plant in your garden (so much easier than starting from seeds yourself). Plus, they’ll have perennials and other stuff, so you can get all kinds of plants and advice because these are Master Gardeners – the smart people we all call for advice!

It’s at the Montgomery County 4-H Center Fairgrounds on Rt 113 in Skippack.

The Greater Philadelphia Dahlia Society says mid-May is the time to plant dahlia tubers, which they’ll be selling for $5.00 each, just outside Longwood Garden’s main entrance on Saturday starting at 9 am.

And, to find loads of those native plants I’m always going on about because they’re so easy to grow and they welcome birds and butterflies to your yard (like our native goldenrod and winterberry holly pictured here) head to the Open House at Collins Nursery at Edgehill Castle in Glenside, PA Saturday from 11am – 4 pm, (with a rain date on Sunday). You’ll discover all kinds of native trees, shrubs, perennials, and get to sample some Elderberry jam (yes, Elderberries are native too!).
