The doyenne of garden clubs in Beaufort, The Beaufort Garden Club, celebrated National Garden Week with their 17th Annual Garden a Day event. The club, in its 76th year, has 29 members, two of whom have been in the club for 56 years.
Five homeowners recently opened their gardens to the townspeople of Beaufort and visitors. These gardens, rarely if ever offered for public view, are some of the loveliest examples of Southern landscaping. The tour was comprised of gardens on Port Republic Street, North Hermitage Road, Dolphin Point Road, Hermitage Point and Hamilton Street
Master Gardeners from the Lowcountry Master Garden Association (in green aprons) were on hand to identify plants and offer information.
