Admission to the garden during the off-season is free.

Abkhazi Garden’s lush, flowering landscape has flourished alongside the Abkhazi heritage home since 1946. Visitors stroll the blossom-brimming garden’s meandering paths, which lead leaf lovers around natural rock outcroppings, between sky-stroking garry oaks, and into garden-gnome parlours. While walking along the banks of the garden’s three small ponds, guests can take in the songs of dozens of bird species and ogle the humble habitat of its three resident turtles. Afterward, guests can retire to the Abkhazi Garden Restaurant for a duet of Silk Road tea complemented by homemade scones bedazzled in clotted cream and strawberry jam.

Abkhazi Garden

Abkhazi Garden is the "garden that love built"—Prince Nicholas Abkhazi, a Georgian prince from Russia, and his bride Peggy settled in Victoria in 1946 and promptly began construction on the garden that they would refer to as "their child." Likened by Princess Peggy to an unfurling Chinese scroll, the blossom-brimming garden's meandering paths lead visitors around natural rock outcroppings, between sky-stroking garry oaks, and through the hedges where gnomes power photosynthesis with their stationary bikes. Along the banks of the garden's three small ponds, the songs of dozens of bird species cascade over guests and the resident turtles. Views of the Juan de Fuca Strait and the Olympic Mountains peek through the gardens' perimeter amid azaleas and the Abkhazi's prized rhododendron woodland area. Inside the now-public main house, a restaurant—open from March to November—sends platters of eggs benedict, niçoise salad, and scones with jams and Devon cream to tables nestled in the great room, where cozy seats overlook the garden.

The garden is beautiful and the people who work there are friendly and informative, and their love for the garden shows through. Visiting there is a lovely relaxing experience.
