    Butchart Gardens, Vancouver Island - Canada.

    Located just north of Victoria on Vancouver Island, this garden is no less than 22ha (55 acres). It started out as a limestone quarry but was turned into a garden as the quarry was abandoned.

    The Butchart Gardens is one of the world's premier floral show gardens. Jennie Butchart began to shape this magnificent landscape in 1904. She established, in the style of the grand estates of the period, several distinct gardens to evoke a range of aesthetic experiences. An abandoned limestone quarry was transformed into the dramatic Sunken Garden, a reflection of the early 20th-century beautification movement and an exceptional achievement in Canadian gardening history. Through successive generations of the Butchart family, The Gardens has retained much of its original design, and continues the Victorian tradition of seasonally changing the outstanding floral displays.
