Down and Dirty Plant Sale

HAMPSTEAD - The Hampstead Garden Club is bringing back their popular plant sale this year with a brand new twist. The “Down and Dirty Plant Sale” is focused on bringing the public healthy, locally grown perennials at fantastic prices. The economy can be tough for some and the club wanted to try to help in that regard. Every plant will be only $4.00, so there is no need to deny yourself that plant you so wanted. There will be at least 1,200 plants to choose from and that will include over 100 varieties of perennials, herbs, and bulbs for sale.

The Club is also trying new avenues of reducing packaging and effort for the public. All plants will be sold in bags instead of pots. The plants will be easier to carry and will be ready to plant as soon as the shopping gardeners get home! The plant sale will have a whole new sleek look to it and plenty of surprises in store.

The plant sale will be held on the Town Hall Green, Hampstead, at a new time, from 10:00 a.m. to 12 noon, on Sat., May 11. At 11:45 a.m., if there are any remaining plants, they will be sold at half price...only $2.00!

The sale moves to Sat., May 18, only in the event of heavy rain.

Please bring your clean pots and trays to our recycling day which will be held at the same location on June 8, from 9:00-11:00 a.m. The Club will make good use of them.

For more information about the club, please contact Phyllis Leocha at or Joanne VanderSande at 382-5177. Visit themon our web site at
