Spring Prelude 2020 – Explore Butchart’s Indoor Gardens

January 15 @ 9:30 am March 15 @ 4:30 pm PST

Spring Prelude 2019 at The Butchart Gardens

Experience spring early at The Butchart Gardens’ Spring Prelude 2020

While the outdoor gardens sleep, the indoor gardens come to life. Step inside the Spring Prelude and stroll along the flagstone pathways while breathing in the subtle fragrance of flowering shrubs and flowers. Garden beds of daffodils and tulips bloom alongside tropical plants and orchids creating a fantasy garden. Flowering cherry, witch hazel, and other flowering shrubs provide a backdrop to a footbridge where Koi gracefully and serenely swim beneath.
