Toledo Zoo Begins 2020 Garden Tour Series

January 23, 2020

TOLEDO, Ohio — It has been said that gardeners know all the dirt… so here’s all the details about the Zoo’s Garden Tour Series. This series brings people and plants together by taking guests through the Zoo’s beautiful gardens and grounds to better understand how our plants grow, bloom and change throughout the seasons.

Each tour is guided by a Zoo horticulture staff member who will discuss different gardening topics, including: growing tips, best management practices and much more. Whether you are a seasoned green thumb or gardening greenhorn, there will be something to learn and apply to at-home gardening projects.

The first tour of the 2020 series is entitled “Come Grow with Us – A Behind-the-Scenes Tour of the Greenhouse and Ziems Conservatory” and will be offered Tuesday, February 11 at 10:30 a.m. and Sunday, March 8 at 1:30 p.m. Join the Zoo’s horticulture staff for a behind-the-scenes tour of our greenhouse facility: home to a unique variety of plants suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Guests will also get a sneak peek at what the Zoo has planned for summer annual displays and take home some tips on how to start and grow healthy annuals, vegetables and indoor foliage plants.

The cost is $10 for Toledo Zoo members and $15 for non-members, per person / tour. Space is limited and reservations are required. Please visit for more information and to make reservations.
