In spite of weathering two damaging hurricanes in the past 20 months, bringing heavy wind, flooding, salt intrusion and then snow and multiple weeks of below-freezing weather, Low Country gardeners were not deterred even though local landscapes were altered, many permanently. “Gardeners are amazing, adaptable, persistent people who will produce greenery and blooms no matter what is thrown their way,” said Sheila Drouin, the 2018 Garden-A-Day Chair.
“For a week in June, thanks to ten homeowners, you will be experiencing the splendor that is Beaufort. And, it’s absolutely free!” said Jane Culley, President, The Beaufort Garden Club.
Garden visitors are asked to not bring pets.
