COVID - 19

Due to Covid-19, the Butchart Garden's Art Gallery will not be opening for the 2020 season.  However, they did manage to fit 4 Mini's and most of the Petri's in their Gift Shop which is currently open.  If you are a local Vancouver Island resident, or you happen to visit the Gardens, you can view these in their Gift Shop.  If you do not see the piece that you are interested in, please provide a staff member with the name of the piece that you want to see and if it is available, they will pull it out of storage where you can view it and make a purchase. If you can not visit the Gardens personally and you are interested in one of the Geode Mini's or Petri's on this site labelled "Purchase at Gallery" you can call the Butchart Garden's Gift Shop at +1-250-652-4422 with the name of the piece, and if it is still available, you can purchase via Credit Card over the phone and the Butchart Garden's staff will ship it to you directly.  Please note that shipping rates apply and you can speak to staff for a price quote.
