Scenic Tours sponsors The Garden Gurus


Starting this Saturday on The Nine Network and running for ten weeks, the series is led by Trevor Cochrane and includes the talents of Kim Syrus, Melissa King, Chloe Thomspon, Matt Leacy and environmental scientist Tod Johnston. 

This week’s episode showcases Tod Johnston introducing the amazing Butchart Gardens, a group of floral display gardens in Brentwood Bay, British Columbia, Canada, located near Victoria on Vancouver Island. This is part of a special offer by series sponsor Scenic Tours who visit these beautiful gardens on their all-inclusive luxury journeys to Canada. The gardens encompass 22 hectares of gorgeously manicured floral displays influenced by the Butchart’s world travels and have been designated a National Historic Site of Canada due to their international renown.
