Toronto Botanical Garden (TBG) 27th annual tour of private gardens in Toronto will take place on Father’s Day weekend (Saturday, June 14 and Sunday June 15, 2014). This self-guided tour can be done at the pace and interest of the participant. Complimentary shuttle buses allow garden-goers to ‘hop on and off” as they make their way around the garden route. If there are any questions, Toronto Master Gardeners are stationed in each garden to help identify unusual plants and points of interest. A printed guide and map are also provided with the purchase of your ticket and some gardens will even have QRcodes to download the full plant list.
All proceeds from this event support the Toronto Botanical Garden.
“Unquestionably the crème de la crème of garden tours — classy, elegant, well organized, full of useful information about plants worth growing.”
— Sonia Day, Toronto Star columnist
Tickets go on sale mid-March 2014
Please note: Some gardens are not wheelchair accessible. Bicycles and strollers are not permitted in the gardens. Tour headquarters will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. during the event.
