HGC Plant Sale

HAMPSTEAD - At last, spring is here, and the Hampstead Garden Club can help you spruce up your gardens with their annual “Down and Dirty” Plant Sale. Scheduled for Sat., May 10 (rain date: May 11), from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., on the Hampstead Town Green (located at 11 Main Street, Rte 121, Hampstead), the plant sale will feature hundreds of healthy plants priced at just $5.00 each. Be sure to join us early for this very popular event and take home some terrific bargains. Last year, they sold out of plants in less than an hour!

The plant sale is the garden club’s annual fund-raiser, and they use the proceeds to help maintain Hampstead’s public gardens, including Ordway park, Sign Island garden, the Veterans’ Memorial Garden, and the Storybook garden at the Hampstead Library. We also fund holiday decorations and the annual Gorham Grant to Hampstead schools. Please help Hampstead Garden Club continue their good works in town by attending our May 10th plant sale.

The Hampstead Garden Club has been dispensing gardening tips, civic pride and fun activities since 1979, and they’re always looking for new members. For more information about the club or on becoming a member, please contact Phyllis Leocha at or Joanne VanderSande at 603-382-5177. Or, visit their web site at They welcome everyone!
