Submitted by on December 12, 2011 – 12:27 amNo Comment

The annual Christmas Flower Show at Allan Gardens Conservatory, 19 Horticultural Avenue, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, is underway through December 31, 2011.

Normal conservatory hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, but opening hours are extended to 7 p.m. on December 17 and 18, 2011, so visitors can enjoy the holiday flowers by candlelight.

Admission is free, although donations to the Food Bank are welcome.

Allan Gardens Conservatory, open to the public year-round, is over 100 years old and has more than 16,000 square feet of greenhouse area. It’s on Carlton Street between Jarvis and Sherbourne streets.
