The Holden Beach Beautification Club completed its Fall Planting of the gardens. Padgett Garden and Town Hall were both planted with over 700 annuals including violas and snapdragons to add winter color.
Some of the gardens are still recovering after Hurricane Dorian this fall. Pocket Park was especially hard hit with flooding from the marsh. The saltwater inundation as well as the flow contributed to the devastation. The Club’s expert gardeners are watching closely and waiting until spring to determine what will survive and what will need to be replaced. We are hopeful that some of the damaged plants that look dead right now will come back this spring. In the meantime, we are enjoying the beautiful newly planted garden areas.
