Many avid gardeners make their home on the Sunshine Coast. The long growing season and sunny weather allow us to spend lots of time in our gardens.
Coast gardening afficianados have banded together to form the Sunshine Coast Botanical Garden Society, which has just purchased land in West Sechelt to create a botanical garden. The garden is still under construction, but there are already things to see, and frequent garden-related events to attend.
Sunshine Coast Botanical Garden
The Himalayan Blue Poppy Garden, located at the bottom of Shorncliffe Road on the path to Snickett Park, boasts a spectacular display of the exotic blue poppy. The "show" begins in mid-April but the poppies can be seen in their full glory in mid-May.
The Sunshine Coast is also home to some exceptional gardens and nurseries.
