This beautiful intimate space has arisen out of the desolation that inspired the creation of the Butchart Garden. Sir Jon’s Circle nestles under the shade of a beautiful Tropical Birch, a new species of birch created in the nearby village of Uki. Planting of several tropical birch saplings now encompass this space along with the rhododendrons we are experimenting with. The wall sheltering the enclosure has just gone up and the steps leading off to the left are in the process of being completed. The vision for this area is one of an intimate space to allow a moment of tranquil contemplation.
