[image-1] Every year the Charleston Horticultural Society chooses gardens to feature in their annual Fall Garden Tour. This year, they have chosen a set of eight private gardens in Riverland Terrace, a neighborhood located on James Island.
Head to Riverland Terrace this Sun. Nov. 3, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. You can buy tickets ($40/general, $35/Horticultural Society members) online or in person at 46 Windermere Blvd.
The eclectic collection of gardens offers different features for visitors; several of the gardens are home to a range of Japanese maples in a burst of fall colors. Another garden displays iron work from Carlton Simmons, the nephew of famous Charleston ironsmith Philip Simmons. One garden also features a 290-year-old oak tree.
The neighborhood also boasts a famous windmill, a butterfly garden, and a community garden with vegetable plots that will all be open for visitors.
