Whether you are a green-fingered gardener or not, you are sure to appreciate the sheer beauty of the spectacular Butchart Gardens, located near Victoria in British Colombia.
Once a limestone quarry, Jennie Butchart transformed this land into a colourful sunken garden with beautiful landscaping. Today, the Sunken Garden is a centrepiece of any trip to the Butchart Gardens with meandering pathways and gorgeous floral displays, but be sure to make time for the equally beautiful Rose Garden, Japanese Garden, Italian Garden and Mediterranean Garden.
With over 100 years in the making, a visit at any time of the year will leave you astounded. Visit in spring for the colourful blooming daffodils and tulips, whilst in summer, longer days are perfect conditions for outdoor performances. In autumn, admire the changing colours of the leaves to golden yellows and rustic reds, whilst in winter, visit the gardens, complete with charming Christmas decorations and twinkling lights – a truly magical experience for all.
