The Holden Beach Beautification Club has chosen the home of Bob Waskey and Rose Leonard at 549 OBW as the September Yard of the Month. They have worked hard to create a garden with palm trees, multiple types of salvia, numerous blooming grasses, rosemary, lilies, and beautiful perennial hibiscus. Bob is pictured with Tucker. Congratulations to Bob and Rose.

There has been tremendous interest in plants removed from Padgett Garden during the recent renovation. Padgett Garden is the waterfall garden at the foot of the bridge and Ocean Blvd often used for family photos. This is the last chance to get Padgett Garden plants for your own garden. There are Crinium Lily bulbs, roses, and other specimens available. These plants make a fun and useful souvenir and will bloom for years.
Prices are great and all proceeds go to beautify the Holden Beach Gardens! See you at the Plant Sale!
