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."
