As such gardens go, St. George is largish and has a lot of variety. The maintenance there is sad, but what there is to see makes the trip worth it. We allotted only about an hour and a half, and in truth most of my large group was done earlier than that. It is a nice place to take kids,... More

These gardens are nice and we enjoyed the relaxing stroll through them. However, they are not as spectacular as many of the botanical gardens we have visited. At the time of our visit, there were not many of the plants in bloom. This may be due to the wrong time of the year or the lack of recent rainfall. It... More

The remnants of the plantation buildings make a nice backdrop for the plantings, and the museum was interesting. However, as we proceeded farther along the self-guided tour, the signage and upkeep dwindled to a bare minimum, to the point where we said "don't need to see any more." Of course, in February there is less going on with blooms and... More

If you have the time and love to look at vegetation, beautiful tropical flowers and the remains of old buildings, definitely put this stop on your calendar. Loved it.

It is well laid out and easy self-guided tour with both a history buffs and gardeners perspective. We went back to the gift shop a day later as we saw similar art elsewhere but not as nice. Prices were better too and they support local artists.

A jewel of a garden amongst ruins of a plantation. Plenty of photo opportunities. Gives you a taste of what life must have been like. Also a nice little museum shop.

St George Village Botsanical Garden is an interesting mix of a beautiful Caribbean Botanical Garden set inside the backdrop of a colonial plantation ruin. Botanical specimens from every continent (except Anarctica) take one into an era gone-by with enough historical significance to be an interesting afternoon for about everyone. The Botanical Garden has been supported for years by volunteers that... More

I really liked visiting this old plantation as part of a Royal Caribbean International tour offering because the tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and engaged in botany. Her love of the flora was evident. We smelled medicinal leaves. We looked inside an abandoned structure that now serves as a bat house. Bats help to keep the bug population down. Ruins... More
