The quiet of winter

More than a spring or summer affair, with Vancouver Island’s temperate climate, The Gardens have something to offer year-round. Enjoy the solitude winter brings, and take in the subtle beauty of our shrubs, trees and flowers, from delicate snowdrops to lush hellebore.

CLOSURE NOTICE JANUARY 23 – FEBRUARY 5 INCLUSIVE. The Butchart Gardens will be closed to the public from Monday January 23 – Sunday, February 5 inclusive. Thank you very much for your support, we look forward to welcoming you back on Monday February 6.
