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.

Spring Prelude

February 16–February 28: 9:00am – 4:30pm
March 1–31: 9:00am – 5:00pm

In mid-January, Spring Prelude comes to life. Stroll along flagstone pathways while breathing in the subtle fragrance of flowering shrubs and flowers. Beds of daffodils and tulips bloom intermingle with flowering cherry, witch hazel, and other flowering shrubs.
COVID-19 protocols in place.
