Highland Youth Garden, Garden Railroad Tour Among the highlights

The garden seasons may have reached their peak, but garden tours are still plentiful, including a special Columbus Garden train tour.

Fall offers Bonsai Day as well as many opportunities to learn about plants at Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. And people who have already learned how to distinguish breast milk are invited to plant additional seeds that can be used to raise royal butterflies in the Franklin soil and water conservation area.

Kids also have many options this week, both invited to programs at Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts at Daws Arborum.

• Visit 22 garden trains around Ohio each year from September 1 to 5 Columbus Garden Train Tour. Settings vary widely, some with tracks up to 1,000 feet and many with garden and water features. The self-guided tour includes trains to Columbus, Westville, Dublin, Manerva Park, Upper Arlington, Grandvis Heights, Grove City, London, Maryville and Sterling.
