Owner description: These internationally acclaimed floral display gardens and National Historic Site of Canada started over 100 years ago and remain privately owned by the family. Jennie Butchart wanted to make her husband's depleted limestone quarry look better and the result is the Sunken Garden. Other gardens include the Rose Garden, the Japanese Garden and the Italian Garden. The gardens are meticulously maintained and provide a riot of colour for much of the year. During the summer, special lighting subtly illuminates the gardens, musical entertainment takes place on the Concert Lawn, and there are ten spectacular Saturday night Firework Shows. The Magic of Christmas season also has beautiful lighting and evening entertainment, and an outdoor skating rink. Spring offers hundreds of thousand flowering bulbs and Autumn is the time for dahlias, chrysanthemums and fall colours. The Gardens is open daily, year round.

We have visited the Gardens many times and never fails to amaze us and any friends we take with us. It is unlikely that there are many other gardens worldwide that would top this amazing place. The Gardens also has a top-notch fine dinning restaurant and a cafeteria for more modest meals.

The Butchart Gardens is the most beautiful gardens I have visited, and anyone travelling to Victoria on Vancouver Island should really make time to visit. My favourite part is the Sunken Garden, but all were lovely. Make sure to plan a good couple of hours (at least) to enjoy the natural beauty as well as the cultivated beauty.

We had heard so much about this place and it most certainly lived up to its reputation. The gardens are immaculate and the flowers are magnificent. Enjoyed every bit of the gardens. It is definitely a must-see if you are in this area!!
