Tour Overview

Hyde Park Garden

Hyde Park

Our first stop is usually Hyde Park, a smallish garden packed with colour and character. It is brimming and bursting with colourful flowers and shrubs some unique to this garden, i.e. Portlandia Grandifloria and Perescia bleo ( one of only 16 cacti that have leaves...). The proprietress, Fay Miller, has a particular enthusiasm for orchids. The setting is superb, with views over the Carenage to Grand Anse and to Point Salines (site of the airport.) After the walk around the garden, you get a well-deserved glass of fruit juice, made from one of the trees you have met!
Palm Tree Garden

Palm Tree Garden

This garden is off the beaten track in a rural area. Start by touring a two acre botanical garden which boasts a wide variety of shrubbery, anthuriums, bromeliads, orchids, gingers, and many other tropical plants many in bloom. Add to this over 40 species of palm trees, and stunning views of the hills and the ocean. Stop by the terraced lily pond and take a peek at the terrapins and red-footed tortoises. Virtually all plants are labelled. The terrain slopes steeply in parts and there are steps to contend with.

There are several other gardens, available upon request.

Alternative 1

Gemma's Eden

Located a short ride into the countryside of St. David's, this very personal and Grenadian garden welcomes you. Your warm-hearted hostess Gemma will guide you with gusto through the separate sunny and jungly-shady areas of her garden. The sunny area features a variety of different hibiscus, herbs and flowering plants amongst other items. The 'forest' area, virtually a foliage garden, nevertheless enchants with its collection of bird of paradise, other heliconia varieties and ginger lilies, some of which have made it all the way to the Chelsea Flower Show. The garden is full of little touches and decorative surprises that give an individual feel.
Alternative 2

Sunnyside

Sunnyside is a garden which was deservedly featured in Channel 4's (UK) TV series Gardens of the Caribbean'. The sheer variety of colours, shapes, sizes, layers and textures of everything from trees to aquatic plants is unforgettable. So too are their names: meet Scorpion Orchids, the Upside Down Tree, the Sealing Wax Palm, Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow, Black-Eyed Susan, and of course the more familiar bougainvilleas and heliconias. The garden is the result of years of TLC by the owner. It is established and mature, but never 'finished': flowers and features are continually being added and changed. The Koi Carp pond is a memorable feature.
