Hi Chloe
The Montréal Botanical Garden, one of the city’s jewels, is recognized as one of the world’s greatest botanical gardens. It offers a colourful program of events, exhibitions and activities all year long.
With its collection of 22,000 plant species and cultivars, 10 exhibition greenhouses, Frédéric Back Tree House, and more than 20 thematic gardens spread out over 75 hectares, it’s also a perfect place to enjoy fresh air and natural beauty.
Located just minutes from downtown Montréal, right near the Biodôme and Olympic Park, the Montréal Botanical Garden is a veritable living museum of plants from the four corners of the globe.

There was talk of creating a large botanical garden in Montréal in the mid-19th century, but it wasn’t until the 1920s when the idea took hold in the mind of a young botany teacher, Brother Marie-Victorin.
Despite the Great Depression, municipal elections and the Second World War, the project managed to take root and develop, nourished by the passion of Brother Marie-Victorin and the man who would become the Garden’s chief horticulturalist, Henry Teuscher. Their work took shape over the years with the official founding of the Garden (1931), design of the administration building and reception gardens (1936 to 1939) and construction of the exhibition greenhouses (which opened in 1956).
With the help of economic conditions and a growing interest in the environment, the Botanical Garden really began to come into its own in the 1970s. It began its research activities, and the success of the Floralies international flower show in 1980 opened the Garden up to the world. Many impressive achievements took place in these years: the renovation of the greenhouses, new facilities, increased collaboration with the Université de Montréal, the creation of societies and social clubs and the development of an ornamental horticulture professional training program.
During this period, the Botanical Garden rose to the rank it enjoys today among the world’s great gardens, thanks to a number of major projects: the Arboretum, the Rose Garden, the Japanese Garden, the Insectarium and the Chinese Garden. Since then, development has not slowed down, as evidenced by the new Reception Centre, the Molson Hospitality Greenhouse, the Frédéric Back Tree House and the First Nations Garden, all of which opened after 1995.
One can explore the beauty of the Garden through its 10 greenhouses and some thirty thematic gardens! I have posted several pictures on my page which you are welcome to come and look at.

Associated with the Montréal Botanical Garden, the Insectarium welcomes you to discover the world of insects. We will visit there another day…
Thank you every birdy for all your votes!
