Hired taxi ('Smokey' who I would thouroughly recommend) who took us on a half day tour of the southern highlands of St Vincent. Climbed up and up from the coast, passing through the fertile Messopotania valley. Would not recommend self drive as roads narrow and poorly signed. Frequent use of the horn round numerous blind corners! Got to Montreal (named... More

This private gardens in the hills about 30 mins drive from Kingstown is a must. The area around is worth seeing alone. The gardens are fascinatingly set out around a small valley and shows the indigenous plants to good effect. The owner is interesting to talk to if a little difficult to engage with! You won't regret your visit.

Met by the proud owner, Tim, we were treated to a delightful tropical garden with a fantastic collection of plants. A bit out of the way but well worth seeking out. Fortunately it features on many cruise programs.

It's a bit off the beateen track, and you need a good driver, but well worth the trip. One of the most spectacular gardens we have ever seen. Harmony, colour, variation and drama all in one. Reminds me of a zen garden, but in the tropics. That is about as fine a compliment I can give. The owner is one... More

Take a self guided tour through these remarkable gardens. The owner Tim Vaughn has made this garden his life's work. The meandering walk will take your through tunnels and along a pleasant stream all surrounded by gorgeous colorful plants and blossoms. There are various sitting areas where you can eat a picnic lunch. The birds and the peacefulness complete the... More

High up in the Mesopotamia Valley near the end of a narrow mountain road is this treasure of a garden that manages to keep the atmosphere of the verdant jungle and also provide layers, textures, and colours in a most satisfying palate.

After the long ride along the narrow bumpy mountain road, we were thinking "this had better be good". It was, it was great! In a mountain setting with a small rocky running stream at the bottom of the garden. Absolutely beautiful flowers in a natural setting. There were many beautiful cut flowers being prepared to go to the market. Tim... More

This garden is a spectacular work of art, ever changing against the tall mountains behind. It is the personal creation of Tim Vaughan one of the word's best landscape gardeners who lives there. It changes but is kept a little on the wild side to allow nature show its full exuberance. An hour or two hour here with not sound... More

The Gardens are located outside Kingstown, about an hours ride to get there over very bumpy, steep, and twisting mountain roads. The Gardens are about 20 years old in a mountainous area. You will see a large variety of flowering plants, shrubs and trees. The owner, Timothy, is a landscape designer. He gave us a brief overview of the garden... More
