Secret Barbados​​
Iris Bannochie created a garden with dual roles - a pleasure garden and a botanic garden.
​Andromeda Botanic Gardens will continue to delight visitors with its undeniable beauty and will fulfil its role as a botanic garden, defined as follows:
​​"Botanic gardens are institutions holding documented collections of living plants for the purposes of scientific research, conservation, display and education."

Only organic practices are used at Andromeda Botanic Gardens. Farmyard and green manures are used extensively in the garden. We only use neem as an insecticide if all other forms of organic control have failed.
​​Andromeda Botanic Gardens is managed and developed in harmony with its status as a botanic garden. It is a member of
BGCI - a worldwide network of botanic gardens concerned with conservation. The University of the West Indies is responsible for research carried out here although individual scientists can arrange a visit directly with the team at Andromeda. Andromeda  Botanic Gardens is a  registered training provider and a range of courses is offered. The team provides educational schedules for interns and their colleges/universities.
