  • Such a lush and beautifully tranquil place to visit. The staff are all so friendly and helpful and give you a good background of the gardens origins on your arrival. Please visit it's well worth the money.
  • Beautiful outdoor botanical garden. There are a series of stone paths that wind through the garden which allow viewing of the plants. Proper footwear should be worn to prevent slipping on mossy stones. Also be ready for high heat and humidity as there is little airflow once you''re in the garden. Wheelchair users will have issues with the many ups, downs and tight turns. Good place for those that are studying horticulture.
  • This is a fascinating place run by incredibly friendly people. They have a tremendous number of plant species, and throughout the garden there are areas that range from bright and colorful to dark and brooding. In other words, tons of variety and a lot to see. Plenty of opportunity to take great photos too, if that's your thing. (Mine may not be great, but I did post them here). After roaming about for an hour or so, we went back to the main building and chatted with Judith for what was probably over half an hour. She was very welcoming, and truly enthusiastic about Andromeda. Oh, and ask for a lime and ginger. It was exactly what we needed after a long walk. BTW - If you're going to head over there, wear sneakers or some kind of appropriate footwear.
  • Wow! A gem of a garden, with a wonderful range of well interpreted plants, but the highlights were the hummingbirds & monkeys...
  • Fabulous and colourful garden, but really not accessible to the less able bodied. Very knowledgeable staff. Best lime & ginger and rum punch, according to the staff.
