Welcome to Andromeda Botanic Gardens, Barbados!
6 Acres of Tropical Gardens with a Unique Collection of Plants
Andromeda Gardens was established by Iris Bannochie (1914-1988) and her husband at the time Dr Harry Bayley around her home in St Joseph. These Gardens are a collection of different plants from many other tropical and sub-tropical locations, either collected by Iris Bannochie herself, or given to her as gifts. Mrs Bannochie was the foremost horticulturalist in Barbados and, in 1977, was awarded the prestigious Veitch Medal by the Royal Horticultural Society, Kew Gardens, England. She bequeathed Andromeda Gardens to the Barbados National Trust in 1988 so that her legacy could live on and be enjoyed by visitors from within Barbados and around the globe.
