Episode 145: formal designs at The Butchart Gardens

In this episode

Listen to the 3rd and last part of our tour in The Butchart Gardens! We explore some of the more formal designs: Japanese, Italian and Rose gardens. We catch a glimpse of Mrs. Butchart’s private garden, the only part that has never been open to the public.
At the end of the show Ivonne can’t resist a second view on the impressive Sunken Garden. Standing near the edge she shares her thoughts about this huge tourist attraction. What can the gardens mean to you as a home gardener or green professional?
