Some of the province’s most notable gardens and communities in bloom can be found here, thanks to the temperate climate and long growing season. Sakura cherry blossom displays can begin as early as February! On Vancouver Island you can experience both high tea in traditional English Gardens and exploring old growth forest bursting with native plants like rhododendrons.
