Butchart Gardens - Global Storybook

The Enchanting Butchart Gardens

The beautiful and the amazing Butchart Gardens is a must-see place when traveling to Victoria or Vancouver, in the British Columbia region of Canada.

The gardens were originally created by Robert and Jennie Butchart on an empty lot that is now covering the area of 130 acres (53 hectare).  In 2004, this family owned attraction celebrated its 100th anniversary and was honored as the “National Historic Site of Canada”.

The Butchart Gardens are open every day of the year, as there are different activities and things to see available all year round.  Fireworks, concerts, boat tours, shopping and dining – these are just some of the offerings that will keep even the most experienced visitor engaged, from young to mature.

As to those that love gardening and are interested in the different kind of plants that grow there – you will not only find a detailed brochure guide with a number of flowers and plants, you will also be able to speak with one of the staff gardeners, ask them anything and even get their email account in case you might need to follow-up with them later.  But the best news await for you inside the souvenir store – yes, you can buy a variety of seeds for a very small price, that you can legally transport into your own country (just ask the cashier and they will give you a special Canadian export label).
