Fall Colours Come Alive in TBG’s Audio Tour

This year Toronto Botanical Garden (TBG) has added a new tour to its annual offerings: an autumn audio tour that allows visitors to fully explore the changing beauty of the season.

“A walking tour of the TBG in autumn presents a harvest basket of visual delights,” says garden photographer/writer Janet Davis,who is the author and creator of the autumn tour.

Liz Primeau, founding editor of Canadian Gardening magazine, narrates this brilliant journey through TBG’s gardens where visitors can feast their eyes on the shocking violet of ‘Early Amethyst’ beautyberry, the ruby red of ‘Winter Red’ winterberry and the silver of Northern bayberry.The handheld audio devices are very easy to use and listeners can stroll through the gardens at their own pace, following a map and signs within the garden, while punching in the corresponding number into the device’s keypad.

The audio devices can be rented from Garden Shop ($5 each) between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. daily.
