The Garden Guide

Butchart Gardens

Robert Pim and Jennie Butchart bought a property at Tod Inlet in 1904 as a convenient place to live while operating their adjoining limestone quarry. When the quarry closed, Jennie decided to make it into a garden. Her descendents continue to manage the gardens and additions are still in progress. There is an Italian Garden, a Japanese Garden, a Sunken Garden, a Rose Garden and a Star Pond. The gardens are a very popular visitor attraction.
