This has to be one of the most vast botanical gardens that I've visited. There are different sections from a Japanese Garden to Chinese Garden to Insectarium. If you happen to be there in June or July, seek out the roses. I could spend an hour enjoying just the roses - it can be spectacular if you get there when they're all in bloom. The place is massive, so plan quite a bit of time to take it all in and take your time. Read the map to make sure you don't miss anything.
Especially don't forget the green houses near the entrance. They have some fantastic plants from zones that would never otherwise survive including dozens of orchids and desert plants. A lot is packed in there, so look up and all around.
There's a small café with a decent selection of food where you can even enjoy a glass of wine while taking in the beautiful gardens view. A tram will also run to take you to different parts of the gardens - I would sometimes take it to the top of the gardens and make my way back on foot.
I cannot recommend going here enough if you plan a trip to Montréal!
