The Butchart Garden Visitors Guide shows that the garden was built in 1904 and the founder, Jane Butchart, only landscaping the limestone pits that his husband had run and that had been abandoned at the time. Mrs. Butchart frequently travels around the world to collect many exotic flowers and trees, cleverly matched and carefully planted, so that the more flowers on the original site of the pit, the more beautiful the sinking garden. Subsequently, in the 53-hectare waste mine area, a number of parks have been expanded, eventually forming a 22-hectare Butchart garden. In the 1920s, this garden received about 50,000 visitors a year.
Butchart Gardens has been in its 114th year. Today, the garden is still owned and operated by the Butchart family. Nearly 100 gardeners and 600 professional gardeners work year-round, carefully maintaining the sunken garden and roses. The garden, the Italian garden, the Japanese garden, the 5 gardens of the Mediterranean garden and the 26 greenhouses for cultivating flowers, from March to October every year, the Butchart Gardens have nearly one million different flowers that continue to bloom, all over the world. More than one million visitors came to enjoy the flowers.

Back in 1888, Robert Pim Butchart, born in Ontario, Canada, was 23 years old. He co-organized the Portland Cement Plant with his friends. In 1902 he came to Victoria and found a rich lime deposit in the Tothaikou. The Butchart family then moved from Owen Sound, Ontario to a new cement plant. After two years, the limestone mining was exhausted, leaving a pit more than 20 meters deep.
In the face of this abandoned mine pit and a messy mine, Mrs. Butchart was uneasy. She began to sprinkle some roses and pea seeds around the house. The flowers and green leaves that surprised her surprised her. The dream of establishing a garden on the waste pit, with the support of her husband, they flattened the waste pit, laid the loam, planted a variety of flowers, planted shrubs and herbs such as ivy and white spider and flowering hawthorn on the inclined wall of the pit. Plants, which also poured clear water into deeper pits, built garden ponds, which formed a well-respected sinking garden. They built five gardens. With the gorgeous turn of the abandoned quarry, Mrs. Butchart finally realized her dream. For more than a century, the Butchart family has worked tirelessly for generations. Today, the Butchart Garden has become one of the ten most beautiful gardens in the world, with an average of more than one million visitors plus flowers and flowers. Derivative services such as consulting, restaurants and cafes have considerable economic benefits. This garden has been awarded the “National Historic Site of Canada” in recent years, which is due to its unique development process from “mine pit” to “garden” and the development model of environmental governance.
