GARDEN WRITERS SYMPOSIUM
VANCOUVER

This symposium showed me why the British Columbian Gardens we visited are world class and truly a little bit of gardening heaven. Minter Gardens is a hidden jewel nestled in the Rocky Mountains. Buchardt Gardens is a glorious riot of colour that stuns the senses. There was so much to show you that it deserves it own page and more.
