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!

         "Spring Pruning" with J.R. Gable

Hopkinton Public Library

You can do it yourself! 
Pruning is vital to maintaining healthy plants and an attractive landscape. Knowing whether to prune in fall or spring and knowing where to cut are the keys to a healthy and lush garden. This presentation will provide you with the information you need to help ensure your trees and shrubs grow and flourish for years to come.

James “J.R.” Gable graduated from U.Mass Amherst with a degree in Landscape Architecture.  He also holds a degree in Landscape Operations from Stockbridge School of Agriculture.  J.R. has been in the landscaping industry for over 30 years.  He has been a member of the Horticulture Faculty at Keefe Technical High School in Framingham, MA, for more than 18 years as a Special Needs and Landscape Design teacher.

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.
