About Butchart Gardens

The gardens were founded by Jennie Butchart, wife of Robert Pim Butchart. In 1904, she began cultivating the soil after extraction of limestone which had been mined in the locality by her husband for his factory Tod Intel. The Butchart Gardens were completed in 1921. At the entrance area you will come across the Sunk Garden with Star Lake, as well as the Sturgeon Fountain and the Ross Fountain. The gardens include the Rose Garden, the Italian Garden and the Japanese Garden. The Butchart Gardens occupies an area of 22 hectares. There are over 1,000 species, and there are some fifty gardeners who take care of them. During the year, depending on the season, the look of the gardens is changing so the gardens are definitely worth visiting at any time around the year. The Butchart Gardens are open to the public around the year.
