About Us

Urban Garden Center (UGC) is Maine’s premiere hydroponic and organic garden supply store.  Locally owned and operated, UGC has been serving Maine growers from more than a decade.  In that time we have grown from 1 store to 4 stores across the state, with our newest Maine store coming to Lewiston in March 2014.

In 2012 we expanded to Manchester, New Hampshire, opening our sister store, Hydro101.  Since that time we have grown to two Hydro101 stores, adding a store in Lawrence, Massachusetts.   

Urban Garden Center and Hydro101 are here to meet all your indoor and outdoor growing needs.  Specializing in organic products, we have the best selection of soils and soil-less mediums, nutrients and lighting options.  Stop by and talk with one of our knowledgeable and experienced staff members.  We can help you customize a package to meet your needs, solve pest problems or troubleshoot other issues you might have.  We also offer more specialized classes at each store.  Like us on Facebook to keep up to date on the events happening in your local UGC or Hydro101 store.

And to meet the needs of central, southern and mid-coast Maine’s homesteaders, Urban Garden Center in Topsham is expanding their selection of local and organic seedlings, perennials and annuals.  We are also now offering supplies for keeping your own bees and chickens, maple sugaring, cheese making and more.  Stop by and see the new look of our oldest store!  And of course we are still here to help with your indoor gardening needs too!

All of our stores offer rotating light package specials and can tailor packages to meet your individual needs. 

If you can’t find it in the store we can almost always order it for you.
