I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Andromeda Gardens. The tour guide Sharon was very knowledgeable and the tour was both educational and relaxing. Lots of varieties of plants and trees to see and their medicinal value was sometimes surprising. The East Side Kitchen Cafe is a must visit and I hope that your chef is Marion as she prepared delicious Amber fish and breadfruit chips along with is molasses cake covered in cream and sprinkled with walnuts. There’s also a gift shop on the compound. Do Andromeda with friends and if you’re driving, that’s a little adventure in itself. You’ll see the beautiful East Coast from the Gardens and learn of the garden’s creator Iris Banochie. She and her husband Dr Harry Bayley raised their daughters on the compound. There house still stands. Lots of beauty! Lots of history! Lots of educational info! A must see🌺

A local friend (free entrance for residents!) took us to Andromeda Botanic Gardens and it was wonderful! With the free mobile phone guide, the three of us enjoyed stopping at markers to learn about various plants, garden areas and history for about three hours. (Most paths are well-marked and level but there are sloping areas and steps. You can go on the long or short route.)
It must be challenging for a small staff and volunteers to keep up with trimming old trees and putting in new plants but the garden looks great overall.
We did not have time to eat at the cute outdoor cafe (shaded) but we looked briefly at the small, tasteful gift shop. There are two bathrooms, near the entrance and car park; another toilet and wash basin at a mid-point location would be helpful. You can take in water bottles. Some young children would find this garden difficult as there is a lot of walking and no places to play.
At the end of the day as we were leaving, several green monkeys passed near the path, stopping to eat fruit from the trees.

Thank you so much for your review. Wonderful indeed! Iris Bannochie was a genius and her garden at Andromeda MUST live on. We desperately need more visitors to ensure the survival of the only heritage garden in Barbados. The team is amazing and do a super job with minimum resources. As the garden is getting bigger and bigger, the team is working harder and harder! Andromeda deserves it. And we're doing even more. Rochelle's Garden is due to be finished later this year and our larger Butterfly Haven should be completed very soon. Even more work for us to do! But even more garden for you to enjoy - maybe 4 hours next time? lol. Thank you for coming and I hope you can return. Regards Sharon.

Thank you so much for visiting Iris Bannochie's 8 acre botanical masterpiece. And better late than never, but come lots more times to make up! ☺️. Over the past few years we have opened up the space and made numerous improvements. As an organic garden, we're focused on protecting our wonderful biodiversity, both plants and wildlife (hence the butterflies 🦋). We're also focused on ensuring inclusion so that locals are able to enjoy an amazing part of their horticultural heritage; all visitors can witness Bajan plant heritage with our Ethnobotanical Garden and The Ground; and our new Rochelle's Garden (for differently abled visitors) will be open later this year. And thank you for your plea for people to visit as sadly, and strangely we get comparatively few visitors. But onwards and upwards! Thanks again. Regards Sharon

From the moment we walked in we felt extremely welcome. The young lady on the desk was very friendly and told us all we needed to know to get around the gardens. The gardens are a testament to the dedicated founders who collected specimens from all over the world but also to the amazing team of people who maintain and develop them today. The informal, enthusiastic and informative commentary provided by the easily downloaded app made it even more special. We were then delighted to come across the lady we had been listening to on the recordings as she was working in the gardens. She was very friendly and seemed genuinely delighted that we had visited.

We finished with a refreshing drink in the cafe area. This place is a little off the beaten track and clearly not as well known as some other gardens on the island but a fantastic place to visit.

Thank you so much! Our reception worker, Indeka, is fabulous. Iris Bannochie created something really special at Andromeda. And, of course, we love it, will cherish it and continue to honour Iris' legacy. As a 1954 botanical landscape, Iris created an 8 acre garden just for her and her family - rare in the Caribbean where so many things are created solely as tourist attractions. I'm pleased you enjoyed the app, created by an amazing person as a gift to Andromeda - wonderful people do exist 🙏🏾. (While recording the commentary I stood next to the relevant plants - helped the authenticity ☺️). And yes, we all get very excited when people visit - we get so few! I hope you are able to revisit in the future. We are expanding, creating some more wonderful gardens within this unique landscape. Thanks again. Regards Sharon

Botanical gardens are more Kim's thing than mine, but we ventured to Andromeda with little idea what to expect.

What we found was a great variety of tropical plants, mainly from Asia, and an ultra-rare mammy apple tree.

It was quiet, calm and the staff were friendly. The app was helpful - download it on their wifi for easy to understand info on the plants.

Good value at BB$30, and free for locals. Allow 90 mins.

4* not 5* as the route marking is inconsistent, so we prob missed some of it, and some areas were blocked off when we went

Overall, well worth the trip.

Thank you so much for coming. Iris Bannochie's Andromeda is a treasure trove with over 600 plant species. Yep, a great variety indeed. The only area blocked off is our Succulent Garden, due to a dangerous tree, so we had to change the route. It is a pity you marked us down for that but hey ☺️. We are a tiny company, just doing our best to keep visitors and staff safe. And we agree! Andromeda is worth visiting - some people stay all day, doing art, enjoying the garden, eating etc. The 8 acre botanical landscape is the only authentic garden in Barbados, created from 1954 as a private garden by our most influential gardener. Rare in Barbados and the wider Caribbean, where most gardens have been created as tourist attractions,not private spaces. We hope you can return as your payment lasts a month and we can take you to the areas you missed! If you visit later in the year, our native plant/butterfly haven, The Ground and our Accessible will be open - even more to explore! Thanks again. Regards Sharon.

Great selection of plants with lots of seating areas to watch the birds. Enjoyed it so much last time. This is a return visit. entry is free this time as we visited two weeks ago.
We sat on the decking at the bottom of the gardens, watching the birds flu over and the hummingbirds in the flowers.
Then up to the Eastside Kitchen (on site) for some great tasting Bajan food and drink.
This will be a definite return visit next time we’re in Barbados.

Thank you! When you return our native plant/butterfly haven will be finished. The Ground, a new garden celebrating the plants used medicinally by the enslaved people, will be finished. Our Accessible Garden will also be open. Yay! And let me know if you'd like a guided tour - no additional fee. Thanks again. Regards Sharon

Thank you so much for coming and reviewing. The business is independently owned and developed by my company. Iris Bannochie created a really special space and we need to protect this incredible heritage site. We've increased the garden by opening up about 3 acres so there's so much more to explore. Our newer conservation areas - The Ground and the native plant and butterfly haven should be finished in a few months. And, as part of our inclusive mission, the accessible garden should be finished by the end of summer. Yay! There will be even more for you to explore so I hope you are able to return. Thanks again. Regards Sharon.

The person who greeted us was very welcoming and polite.
A warm welcoming smile makes all the difference.
There was some storm damage to the gardens when we visited however it was not going to spoil our day.
Very relaxing day was enjoyed by us both.

Thank you for review. We're just so happy that people take the time to visit, hence our happiness! ☺️ I'm pleased you had a relaxing time. The damage to the bearded fig was not storm related. It simply collapsed. We have great plans for the area so I hope you'll be able to come back and see the progress. And yes, we're well hidden - just wish we weren't so we'd get more visitors! Thanks again. Regards Sharon

Not as well signposted or publicised as it could be, but worth seeking out. Maybe not as good for dedicated horticulturalists, because information and labelling of specimens isn't great, but for an all round very relaxing, peaceful hour or two it's definitely worth a visit. The dedicated, informative proprietor and her team are working hard on improvements and creation of additional areas. We look forward to seeing their achievements on our return.

Thank you so much for coming and reviewing. Dedicated horticulturists (and others, of course😊) love the 8 acre botanical landscape of Andromeda Botanic Gardens and have described the information provided as extensive and educational. We have literally hundreds of plant labels (for most of our 600 plant species), interpretive signs (for some of the special ones!), the Andromeda app (the best app ever! 😊), plus guided tours are always available at no additional cost (for those wonderful insights that bring the garden to life even more!😊). Looking forward to showing you all we have, and all we will have,😊 when you return. Gentle reminder, you fee gives you unlimited returns for one month so come back now! 😊. Thanks again. Regards Sharon

We have been lucky enough many years ago to stay on several occasions in Andromeda House in the gardens . There have been many changes over the years but all of it to the good, with new areas being cleared and developed. It is a places to look at many unusual plants and also to sit and relax. Having walked around the gardens, it is worth visiting the cafe' for lunch, with quite a wide range of light meals and also drinks. We do still like to visit every time we visit Barbados to see what further changes have been made.

Thank you - for reviewing and being part of our Andromeda journey. 🙏🏾 There'll be even more to see when you return. Next on our list for this year are extending the native plant and butterfly haven in our Ethnobotanical Garden; creating an accessible garden and composting zone; finishing the Ground, celebrating the medicinal plants used by the enslaved; and completing the wildlife zone - the memorial for the fallen bearded fig tree. Loads more! 😊 Eastside Kitchen is independent and has it's own review page. Hope you can post about it there. We look forward to welcoming you back. Thanks again. Regards Sharon.
