Come sit a spell in this charming garden, and then visit the other five gardens on the All Saints Garden Tour.

It’s back, after a two-year hiatus. The 33rd Annual All Saints Garden Tour will be held May 21 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in spectacular gardens on Hilton Head Island and in Bluffton.

This year’s tour features gardens of various sizes, most of which are located on the water. Some are designed and maintained by professional landscapers while others were lovingly created by the owners.

This self-guided tour includes six distinctive gardens, all of which are new to the tour, located in four gated communities on Hilton Head Island and in Bluffton.

In Moss Creek, one garden focuses on the natural beauty of the Blue Heron Sanctuary and Rookery, while another has a huge live oak that might be between 300 and 400 years old.

Port Royal has a laissez faire-style garden where frivolity rules, and another is a structured beachfront property with multiple outdoor living areas.

Indigo Run do-it-yourself gardeners installed flagstone and paver paths, patios, fences, raised beds, and more. A newly renovated landscape with four distinct design styles is featured in Hilton Head Plantation.

Each $35 ticket includes the full tour. In view of the uncertainties COVID-19 has created, there will be no lunch, boutique, or bake sale at All Saints Episcopal Church this year.

However, a Master Gardener to answer questions will be located in one of the gardens! 

Tickets are available online at allsaintsgardentour.com, and if ordered by May 6, they will be mailed to you.

Tickets can also be purchased at All Saints Episcopal Church, 3001 Meeting St. on Hilton Head Island, or at garden centers and other businesses through 10 a.m. May 20. Look for the Garden Tour Posters with the colorful red flowers.

For tickets and updated information, visit our website or call 843-681-8333. Tickets not picked up by noon on May 21 are forfeited. Participants need to be able to safely walk on flagstone pathways and through gardens.

All net proceeds from the tour are donated to local charities. Our 2022 grant recipients will be BackPack Buddies of Bluffton, Backpack Buddies of Hilton Head Island, Jasper County Backpack Buddies, Hilton Head Island Safe Harbour, St. Stephens United Methodist Church Outreach Foodbank, and Family Promise.

All our charities deal with the issues of hunger, homelessness, aging, or literacy. Over the years, more than $500,000 has been given to local charities from this annual event.
