The Hooksett Garden Club Mission Statement
The Hooksett Garden Club wishes to encourage interest in all phases of gardening, floral design and horticulture; to aid
 in the protection and conservation of natural resources; and to assist in the civic beautification of the community.

                                                        
Meeting Information
Monthly meetings are held at the Hooksett Public Library, 31 Mount Saint Mary's Way, Hooksett NH, on the last Wednesday of the month February through October. Meeting time is 4 PM to approx. 6 PM.

2017 marks the twentieth anniversary for the Hooksett Garden Club. Founded in 1997 by 12 charter members, the club has been an active part of the Hooksett community ever since. We welcome new members. You don't have to live in the town of Hooksett to attend a meeting or be a member.  New to the area and want to meet new people?  Stop by and we'd be happy to meet you! Anyone interested in joining, or just curious as to what we are all about, is encouraged to come to a meeting and see what goes on. Some of our members have extensive gardening knowledge and are Master Gardeners - others have learned by trial and error. Programs are free and open to the public unless it states you will be making something then a charge to cover materials will be required. The HGC is a member of the New Hampshire Federation of Garden Clubs, Inc.  and also the National Garden Clubs, Inc., New England Region and through those affiliations many other educational and social opportunities are available to us.

October


Fall is planting time for shrubs and trees. The soil is still warm

and most garden centers have them on sale. Check to see that the root systems are good. 

They should not be flowering.


Do not plant roses at this time. After Thanksgiving spray with Wilt-Pruf and mulch your roses. If they are grafted, 

wrap them. Cut them back in the spring. 


If transplanting plants, it is better to put plants in pots and then heal them into the ground. If kept in pots

in the garage the roots will be too cold.
