I love visiting Toronto’s parks and gardens to recharge my batteries and I recently visited Toronto Botanical Garden to check out the flowers in bloom. Although we are enjoying an actual spring in Toronto this year, the result is not all of the flowers are in bloom yet. There were, however, some flowers on display when we visited Toronto Botanical Garden on May 31, 2019.

The Toronto Botanical Garden is actually 17 groomed gardens, including a knot garden, a pollinator garden with urban bee hives, a Spiral Mound, a kitchen and herb garden, a woodland walk and bird habitat, a teaching garden and others. It is situated beside Edwards Gardens, but don’t confuse the two gardens. Edwards Gardens is a public park owned by the City of Toronto while the Toronto Botanical Garden is a volunteer-driven charity. If you love gardens, you might want to buy a ticket for Mark’s Choice Through The Garden Gate , taking place on June 8-9, 2019. This private home garden tour takes place in various Toronto neighbourhoods: this year, the tour will be in The Beach. You can purchase tickets at Toronto Botanical Garden. Have a look at some of the flowers we saw on our visit to Toronto Botanical Garden.

This peonie is just about to bloom. Even the bud is gorgeous.

Visiting Toronto Botanical Garden on a Friday was a good idea because there were not crowds of people there and I was able to take photos without people walking in the frame.

I loved these variegated tulips and the contrast of burgundy and pink is stunning.

A trip to Toronto Botanical Garden is not complete without a visit to the Garden Shop. The shop sells garden accessories, as well as scarves, plates, mugs, totes, hats, tea towels, and mats and many things were reasonably priced. It’s a great place to pick up a birthday gift for gardeners and non-gardeners alike.
