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.
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.
