The quiet of winter

Please continue to check back to the COVID-19 Update for current information.

You may think of The Gardens as a spring or summer affair, but with Vancouver Island’s temperate climate, The Gardens has 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.

In appreciation of the hard work our Staff has done over this second difficult year, and to allow them time to rest and renew, The Butchart Gardens will be closed to the public from Monday, January 24 – Sunday, February 6 inclusive.

Thank you very much for your support, we look forward to welcoming you back on Monday, February 7th.

We are extending all 12 Month Passes that are valid between January 24 – February 6, 2022, by the total number of days we will be closed (14).

Spring Prelude

From January 15 – 23 & February 7 – March 20, The Blue Poppy Restaurant is transformed into a wonderful indoor floral conservatory with paths lined by flowering shrubs, trees and thousands of bulbs.
