This small garden is located in Fairfield, a beautiful area of Victoria. The garden is looked after that the Land Conservancy of BC. A large portion of the garden is comprised of rhodos but there a a lot of other neat plants too. To tour the garden only takes about 15-20 mins. (not long at all for the $10 entrance fee) but at least it is going to a good cause. The gift shop and tea room are nice but if you are looking for a full meal I wouldn't plan to have that here. They have snacks, desserts and a few very lite meals. Staff was friendly and helpful. Overall an okay place to check out.
Open 11-5 daily including holidays - March 1 - September 30
This significant heritage garden was created by Prince and Princess Abkhazi in 1946 and developed by them over the 40 years of their life together. The romantic story of the Abkhazis and their garden holds many of the elements of a fairytale.
In 1999, the Garden was saved from townhouse development by The Land Conservancy, a charitable land trust.
The unique design of this one acre site is strongly influenced by its dramatic natural setting. It features endangered Garry Oak trees, spectacular rhododendrons, mature ornamental conifers, rock and alpine plants and naturalized bulbs with wonderful views over the city to the Olympic Peninsula.
Enjoy a cup of tea in the tearoom to complete your visit.
