A Garden on the Sound is just one of the distinctive gardens included in the 2023 All Saints Garden Tour. COURTESY ALL SAINTS GARDEN TOUR

The ever-popular All Saints Garden Tour will celebrate its 34th year of sharing unique local gardens with its self-guided tour from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 20.

The Tour has something for everyone with this year’s six distinctive gardens: mature gardens of various sizes; gardens located on the water; gardens that were lovingly created and maintained by the owners; and gardens with stunning views.

Each $35 ticket includes the Tour and access to the All Saints Boutique and Bake Sale. A raffle for an original pastel by award-winning artist Joyce Nagel will be held during the day.

The six gardens are: An Unexpected Garden, Hilton Head Plantation, with mature camellias and hydrangeas, a pool and fountains; Serenity on the Sound in Port Royal Plantation, a tropical paradise with lilies, citrus and breathtaking views of Port Royal Sound; After the Deep Freeze in Port Royal Plantation, a mature garden with hydrangeas that is always a work in progress; Wright Family Park in Bluffton, with its historic camellias and a view over the May River; In the Mood for a Change in Moss Creek, where the owner was inspired by freeze damage to try new things; and Nostra Gioia  (Our Joy) in Hilton Head Plantation, designed to be a pleasant place to sit and contemplate nature.

Through noon on May 19, they  also can be purchased at The Greenery, The Green Thumb , Bruno Nursery, All Saints Episcopal Church, Burke’s Pharmacy, Hilton Head Wine & Spirits, and Markel’s Card & Gifts, Taylor’s Landscape and Sunshine Nursery during normal business hours.
