Charleston Area Open Day - June 1, 2024, The Old Village of Mt. Pleasant

Sat, Jun 1, 2024

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

Enjoy an extraordinary opportunity to visit the Low Country’s finest private gardens at the height of the spring season.

This season, our first weekend features gardens on Kiawah Island, then gardens in the Old Village of Mt. Pleasant the following weekend. Six different gardens are on tour each Saturday, and details will be announced soon.

Purchase tickets for this Saturday's tour below to reserve your spot for this extraordinary opportunity. Tickets for the May 25 tour can be purchased here. Tours are self-guided. Maps and other directions will be distributed in early May.

Please observe these new procedures and help us ensure a safe, contactless, and seamless garden experience for all visitors as well as our generous garden hosts:

  • Pre-registration is STRONGLY ENCOURAGED for this event. Pre-register for this weekend on this website. Children under 12 are free and do not need to be pre-registered if accompanied by pre-registered adult.
  • Capacity is limited. Sorry, no paper tickets or Garden Conservancy credits will be accepted.

For more details about these changes for this season, see the Open Days Q&A.

    In our loose approach to gardening, we try not to sweat the small stuff. In our garden you will find a variety of plants and not all will be behaving.

    My raised beds typically have flowers and herbs because I like to arrange bouquets as a hobby.
