Dig into Toronto’s largest tour of pri­vate gar­dens

Thornhill Post - - Homes -

There’s some­thing ex­cit­ing hap­pen­ing in our back­yards (lit­er­ally!). On June 9 and 10, gar­den-go­ers can em­bark on a tour of 19 res­i­den­tial out­door spa­ces north of Lawrence Av­enue and west of Les­lie Street. Green thumbs can pe­ruse the pretty petals and stroll the scenic ’hood with map in hand pro­vided by host Toronto Botan­i­cal Gar­den for this self-guided tour. Fret not, for al- though you will be tour guide­less, there will be mas­ter gar­den­ers from the TBG sta­tioned at each lo­ca­tion to an­swer ques­tions and chat your ear off about all the de­sign fea­tures. And when your toes get tired and the temps get hot, feel free to grab a gourmet Ice Pop from Augie’s along the route and use the shut­tle bus to make it to those last few gar­dens be­fore the day is done.
