How did Jenny Butchart turn an ugly, disused limestone quarry into the world’s most famous private garden?  Over 100 years later Butchart Gardens still attracts almost a million visitors from around the globe, to enjoy a world created by an unrivalled green-thumb visionary.

The stuff of legend is what makes a good story, and the stuff grows here as quickly as a well-tended flower bed. Legends cannot be proved or disproved, merely recounted and enjoyed. Mystery and speculation only serve to make them more durable. Butchart Gardens is certainly a legend. Filled with myth, folklore, and love, it’s a cheerfully told story, as colourful and unique as the gardens themselves.
