Our New Self-Watering Downtown Planters!!

This year, our club purchased self-watering planters for the downtown area. Each planter can hold up to 18 gallons of water which is then available to the plantings on a continuous basis. The water supply needs to be replenished on a regular basis ranging from about 1 week in extremely hot summer weather to 2 weeks during early spring and fall. Previously, our members had to water planters every day or so in extremely hot weather. Getting the 4 - 6 gallons of water to each planter was not an easy task! The new planters are easier to maintain and provide the water needed to keep the plants looking their best.



Join Us!

Do you like flowers? Landscapes? Meeting new friends? How about contributing to your town? The Hopkinton Garden Club offers all this and more! Club members offer a variety of gardening interests and experience. Some like to get their hands dirty, others prefer floral arranging or garden design. Whatever the preference, we are always learning! Everyone donates time and energy to plant and maintain Hopkinton's public spaces several times a year. 

We'd love to have you join us! See our membership page for information.

Thank you to our "Help Hopkinton Bloom" Sponsors!

We want to express our appreciation to the local businesses who generously donated to our "Help Hopkinton Bloom" site sponsorship drive. With their help we will be able to refurbish older planted areas, work towards replacing our aging planters and enhance our town plantings.

Please join us in supporting our sponsors and recognizing their contribution to our community.

Site Sponsors:
Opportunities are still available to sponsor one of our club's planters or sites. We would welcome your participation in our program! If you are interested, please email us at info@hopkintongardenclub.org.
