From June 2 to 6, stroll through lovely gardens at the annual Garden-a-Day tour sponsored by the Beaufort Garden Club. This marks the 20th anniversary of this no-charge garden tour. To help with the event, area Master Gardeners act as docents in the gardens each day.

The Beaufort Garden Club hosts Garden-a-Day tours from June 2-6.

On Monday, June 2, there will be two cottage gardens to view. Both were part of the original garden tour 20 years ago and are located in The Point neighborhood: 606 North St. (The Point) and 702 Hamilton St.

The garden for Tuesday, June 3, features about 5 acres of plants, trees, garden decor, and water features. Perhaps the pet turtle or the parrots that occupy the garden will pose for a photo. So much to see at this home on 1 Blythewood Road, Lady’s Island.

Wednesday, June 4, returns to The Point with a delightful specimen garden. It will inspire your thinking about your own garden. Located at 315 Laurens St.

On Thursday, June 5, enjoy this small but mighty jewel of a garden and experience a guided tree walk provided by the Lady’s Island Garden Club. This historic tree walk features trees throughout The Point. Visit 715 New Street.

Friday, June 6, this garden is about 2 acres and the pride of a local landscaper. Throughout the garden, perennial plants artfully mix with annuals at 38 Sundown Bend (off Broad River Boulevard in Burton).

Come rain or shine, the tour runs from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Remember, there is no charge for this event.
