Andromeda Botanical Gardens
The Andromeda Botanical Gardens is located in the eastern parish of St.Joseph, just up the hill from Bathsheba village. It's a magnificent six-acre garden containing several varieties of tropical flowers, shrubs and trees including orchids, palms, ferns, heliconia, hibiscus, bougainvillea, begonias and cacti.
The beautiful and exotic flowers are complemented by a lovely stream which bisects the land and forms enchanting pools and waterfalls.
Stroll along winding paths at your own pace, enjoying the tropical blooms, towering trees, and refreshing island breezes. The elevated location also offers lovely peeks at the ocean.
The name Andromeda is derived from the mythical Greek goddess who was chained to a rock. Work on the Garden was started in 1954 by Mrs. Iris Bannochie, a local horticulturist. At her death, Mrs. Bannochie bequeathed Andromeda to the Barbados National Trust, which now runs the Garden.
