Allan Gardens Conservatory is over 100 years old with a garden-filled greenhouse that covers over 16,000 square feet. This garden is open to the public year-round. It contains tropical plants from all over the world from palm trees to cacti. There are also seasonal plantings throughout the year.
How to get there
Allan Gardens is easily accessible by TTC. Take the Yonge subway to College Station. Then take an eastbound Carlton streetcar to Sherbourne St. Allan Gardens is located on the south side of Carlton St. between Jarvis Ave. and Sherbourne St.
I have added some photos from a recent visit to the Conservatory:
The entrance to the greenhouses that are over 100 years old.
A sign indicating the hours of operation.Angels Trumpet (Brugmansia). It is too cold to grow this plant outdoors so it in a container and goes into the greenhouse during the winter
What was surprising on my visit in May was to see daffodils, tulips and iris all blooming at the same time.
The park outside the greenhouse was filled with a wide variety of unusual plants and trees to delight the eye.
