Green Escapade: A Trip To The Centennial Park Conservatory

by Barbara-

It’s time again for another conservatory tour. And once again, it is in Toronto.  Couldn’t think of a better way to spend an hour on a cold day than in a toasty conservatory surrounded by plants.


We are greeted at the entrance by this beautiful ParrotIMG_2314 IMG_2316 IMG_2317 IMG_2318 IMG_2319 IMG_2320 IMG_2322 IMG_2324 IMG_2325 IMG_2327 IMG_2328

I am repotting my Kalanchoe ‘Fang” ASAP after seeing this huge one. I would love for mine to get this big and repotting is way overdue.

Look at what they did to the polka dot plant. Never seen it presented like this.

Hi, I’m Barbara and I’m a little obsessed with house plants. I share my house plant adventures in the hopes of inspiring you to continue to enjoy the greens in your home. And if you have no plants (yet!) I hope this blog inspires you to add some green to your home. So go on! Try it! I think you might quite like it. And who knows? You may end up being … obsessed too.

    Lovely – thanks for sharing! I used to work very close to this conservatory…it’s a shame I didn’t spend a few lunch breaks there 🙁

      I can never get enough of conservatories. Ottawa has a very small one here which is great but is closed on weekends!!! So I can’t get to enjoy it as much as I would like. 🙁
