This was not my first visit to HCP, so after two previous vists since February I felt I needed to write and comment on the pleasure of visiting this garden, or what is a few gardens rolled into one! Seeing the changes in the garden as the climate changed, different signs of new life appearing to add to the many beautiful trees and scrubs everywhere. This is a 43 acre site outside the city of Victoria, designed to showcase the range of plants and gardening styles possible in the Pacific Northwest; includes a children's garden; a Bonsai Garden ; a Japanese Garden;Herb Garden; a Rhodo & Hosta garden ..and more! A peaceful place to visit and learn much about so many types of garden.

This is a gardeners garden with lots of interesting varieties and species. There is a fantastic bonsai display, rhododendron garden, Japanese garden, etc, etc. This is a teaching facility also, so there are always interesting ideas for plant groupings and garden hardscaping

These award-winning, “demonstration” gardens are a MUST SEE – a fascinating tapestry of exquisite plantings & garden décor on 9 acres – promoting education & stewardship. They are affiliated with the Pacific Horticulture College, yet are open to the public.

And what a bonus for visitors who venture here! A scintillating treasure, inviting you to wander the grounds just like Alice in Wonderland!

Floral pathways lead to over 34 botanical sections, thoughtfully created to tickle your senses, & surprise you with enchanting garden delights!

At the entryway pond, look for the golden-eyed bullfrog peeking from a floating patchwork of “lucky” 4-leaf clovers which are actually water ferns! To your left is the gift shop & pay window ($ 16 adult admission; $ 12 for seniors & students), alongside a table with brochures, garden maps, and a colorful bulletin board highlighting plants & pollinators you may encounter.

Stroll farther, and you’ll walk with Alice! Watch for giant swallowtail butterflies kissing plum-sized yellow daisies, glistening green hummingbirds buzzing by, little lizards sunbathing on forest rocks, tipsy bumble bees boomeranging blossom to blossom, bold dragons flashing their gossamer wings atop snow-white water lilies, and dark-eyed juncos dancing at your feet.

A few steps more, and behold the stunningly serene, sand-raked Japanese Zen Garden, which leads to hilltop displays of magnificent Bonsai trees – renowned as Canada’s largest outdoor Bonsai Garden!

Circle round, and come face to face with lovely floral trellises laced with fragrant roses & baby pink sweet peas, a children’s gnome area, pollinator gardens, herbal & lily & heather gardens, a bridal garden, a Mediterranean garden, & so much more – exhibiting an astounding variety of plants!

Turn around again, back to a forest footpath densely lined with head-high ferns, and check out the Wsánec Ethnobotany trail – with plant ID plaques, including Native names. From there, you can stroll into a sunny open area – to the expansive veggie gardens joyously ornamented withhand-painted artwork. Look closer for unexpected surprises, and you may spy the Lasagna Garden (my favorite), & sure to bring a smile!

Throughout the gardens, you can sit at secluded benches tucked in scenic niches for private meditation & reflection, & relaxing time with friends. Most of the walking is easy, although some of the outlying paths are somewhat steep & rocky, and thus not suitable for wheelchairs.

Amazingly these gardens are tended mainly by volunteers – giving their time in the gift shop, administrative office, and outside – getting down on hands & knees – shoveling dirt, weeding, adding flowers, & placing garden ornaments & plant identification labels. Kudos to the many volunteers working so lovingly to enhance the visitors’ experience on these beautiful grounds!

Along with low entry fees, parking is free (although limited). Nearby is a charming café (Charlotte & the Quail) which has offerings that include quiches, tartines, & gourmet lattes, but is separate from the gardens. On-site plant sales are a plus – and we bought a lovely red/purple Fuchsia ‘Margaret’ – perfect for attracting hummingbirds!

See the HCP Gardens Website & Facebook page for more info. – especially for hands-on workshops, special events, kids’ programs & camps, volunteer opportunities, reception rentals, etc. You can’t see everything in one visit, so try to go to the gardens many times. And don’t miss the annual “Arts & Music in the Gardens” event – August 12th – 13th, 2023; check the HCP website for listing of vendors & special event parking. And enjoy this magical place!

Just the right size of a garden, not overwhelming and at a great price. Great place to come if you want to see a beautiful garden and not be over populous like the other famous garden.

We sadly attended a memorial service here but the gardens were beautiful we will go back to see them in more detail. Was a lovely setting for any type of celebration or event.

As visitors from overseas we only got here because we had a rental car for the day. We'd arranged for a volunteer guide and we had a very interesting hour with Julie who was training to be a Master Gardener. HCP is essentially a teaching garden in a rural setting and it was a delight to see many birds and insects along with a diverse selection of plants and garden styles. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and learned a lot about the botany and ecology of Vancouver Island. Recommended.

This is a fascinating stop for anyone interested in gardening, what grows here, lovely gardens - drought resistant, fuschia, iris, herb garden. Had a delicious carrot cake at Charlotte and the Quail after. The gardens were full of cheery, hardworking students. Really nice spot!

It was sooo wonderful to just meander thru such amazing garden designs and just enjoy the sound of the birds and hear the water cascading down the hill. What a treat, the bonsai trees were impressive and the variety was astounding. We were able to sit on benches and just listen to nature. We watched hummingbirds and struggled to identify the huge variety of plants, but most have tags fortunately. We practically had the place to ourselves on a sunny weekday.

The Gardens at HCP are lovely and reasonably priced ($12 for Adults, $9 for Seniors and Students, Free for children). The Horticultural Centre of the Pacific are part of the college and students as well as volunteers keep the gardens blooming throughout the year. The gardens include many different gardens including an herb, urban, farm, ornamental grasses and a birds, bees and butterflies garden, They also have a rhododendrun & hosta, a rose and a hosta garden as well as a children's garden. My favourite area is the Takata Japanese garden with a lovely display of Bonsai as well as beautiful seating where you a free to sit and read. It is a lovely place to visit. They also have a place for weddings, services and conferences. There is a lovely cafe on site as well.

Recently attended a wedding here and it was stunning for a wedding. The views were amazing and lots to see in between the ceremony and reception. I wouldn't be sure I would spend $12 to come in and see the space though. Very peaceful.
