The creator of Andromeda Botanic Gardens, Iris Bannochie, created a garden from 1954 with dual roles - a pleasure garden and a botanic garden. It is indeed 'rare' (New York Times) and 'unique and outstanding' (RHS show judge).

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." ​ International Agenda for Botanic Gardens in Conservation.
Please note Andromeda Botanic Gardens is not wheelchair accessible. Only the reception, café, classroom and upper washrooms can be fully accessed by wheelchair users. The topography of the site, on a coastal location, makes full accessibility impossible.

8 acres of cultivated gardens with over 500 plant species - the oldest Barbadian garden and the largest garden in Barbados, both in terms of acreage and number of plant species. Amazing trees, beautiful individual but connected gardens, outstanding biodiversity including monarch butterflies - all in this organic, historic, botanical landscape. ​Visiting Andromeda is a truly authentic Barbados experience.
