Lovely roses for October!










Our Self-Watering Downtown Planters!!

In 2018, 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.

We Greatly Appreciate Your Support!

We are grateful for all donations in support of our volunteer community service programs. Please click here if you would like to donate to our club via credit card or check.


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. Our sponsors help has enabled us to purchase self-watering planters for Main Street, and to keep them and our garden sites filled with blooms and greenery.

beautiful slide presentation featuring  photographs taken by Hopkinton Garden Club member Jina Kessler during her visit to Les Jardins de Quatre-Vents in the summer of 2019. The gardens of Quatre-Vents were designed and created by the late American gardener and horticulturist Francis Higginson Cabot. Located in La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada, the gardens are considered among the most magnificent private gardens of our time. They feature more than 1000 different plant species in settings illustrating Mr. Cabot’s vision and creativity. The gardens and their designer were the subject of the 2016 documentary “The Gardener”, directed by Sebastien Chabot.

Jeanne (Jina) Carey Kessler is a retired Special Needs teaching assistant who has been gardening for over 40 years.  She has been a member of the Hopkinton Garden Club for the past 30 years and a member of the Landscape Design Council of the Garden Club Federation of Massachusetts for 20 years.  Additionally, she is a member of the Tower Hill Botanical Garden, the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, the Garden Conservancy, and is a recent graduate of the Massachusetts Master Gardener Association training program.  Jina considers herself to be a trial and error dirt gardener who has taken a plethora of gardening classes over the years to increase her knowledge and understanding of the horticultural world. She credits her passion for gardening from her father and both sets of grandparents. On a personal note, Jina is the proud mother of two very special young ladies, wife to a wonderful “gardening helper” husband, and lover of her golden retriever. 



















This program is supported in part by a grant from the Hopkinton Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
