Spring Prelude at The Butchart Gardens

January 15, 2016 @ 9:00 am - March 31, 2016 @ 5:00 pm

Step out of Winter and into Spring! It’s as easy as that when you stroll the paths in our astonishing indoor garden. Beds of daffodils and tulips, with flowering cherries, witch hazel and viburnum…Experience an incredible, fragrance filled indoor garden with flagstone paths, flower cherries and witch hazels, and beds of daffodils and tulips. Breathe deeply, take in the beauty of this early spring display and, from a foot bridge, enjoy the Koi swimming serenely in a pond.

As you wander through this garden you’ll be amazed at how our gardeners turn the Blue Poppy Restaurant into a dazzling spring display in fewer than seven days.


There are a few different themes in our Spring Prelude ranging from tropical borders accented with orchids to a temperate area which features an amazing range of plant material forced into bloom. The display also features an intimate Asian themed courtyard centered on a dazzling water wall as well as a garden area designed specifically for wedding ceremonies.

The display provides waves and layers of colour, intoxicating fragrance and the sounds and movement of water all together in the intimacy of a cleverly crafted indoor garden. For more information see the experiences page at The Butchart Gardens. Enjoy!
