We took a visitor from Ontario to the gardens in late fall. Weren't expeciting too much at this time of year but were really impressed. Gardens were beautiful. Hope this offer comes again, will certainly be bringing more visitors in the future!!

I really enjoyed my trip there and the gardens. My Mum had been there around when it first opened and wasn't really impressed, but this time she loved it and enjoyed how much the grounds had improved since that time. We came in the fall and may consider a trip earlier in the year to see more of the blooms. One spot I particularly enjoyed was the bed of different heathers, as it's my name and I had no idea there was so much variety.

Although Annapolis Royal Historic Gardens has only existed since 1981, its ties to horticultural experimentation date back more than 400 years. Built atop the foundation of Port Royal––the first permanent European settlement in North America––Annapolis Royal was the site of pioneering gardening in the 17th century. Early settlers used the plot to clear native vines and sow rows of Old World seeds such as hemp, rye, and wheat.

Despite their relative youth, the gardens reveal a great historical depth in their 17 acres, with themed spaces representing the changing floral aesthetics between the time of those early settlers and the present day. More than 3,000 exotic and native plants recreate the extravagant taste of the times in the Victorian Garden; the Innovative Garden showcases the clever planning and sustainable practices that make flowers flourish in cramped urban plots rather than uproot and busk for extra fertilizer.
