Charleston Open Days 2022

Join us for two exciting weekends of Behind the Garden Gate: Charleston Open Days, presented by the Garden Conservancy and the Charleston Horticultural Society.

Walls of entwined ivy, dazzling blooms, and sun-dappled fern fronds abound in Charleston’s botanical sanctuaries. The Garden Conservancy and the Charleston Horticultural Society open the Holy City’s garden gates for self-guided tours of its finest private gardens. Each Saturday tour features seven different private gardens, all within walking distance, promising two weekends full of exploration and beauty in these artfully cultivated spaces.  Pre-register for each weekend on this website.
