Toledo Botanical Gardens
Located in Toledo, Ohio, the Toledo Botanical gardens is a collection of eighteen gardens that covers over twenty acres. Featured gardens include the azalea garden (pictured above), an herb garden, cottage garden, rose garden, perennial garden, green garden, and my favorite, the Pioneer garden.
The Pioneer garden is a small garden that is dedicated to northwest Ohio's first settlers. It features a log cabin that belonged to Peter Navarre, a well-known frontiersman. It has been said that Johnny Appleseed himself planted the large apple tree that stands near the cabin. The garden contains a variety of heirloom flowers and vegetables.
The gardens are free and open to the public year round.
