This is a gem on St. Croix if you like history which we do. Built on the site of an old plantation village, it incorporates history and a botanical garden. An infusion of funding would make this even more interesting, but without it, it is still worth the trip. Local artists are featured in the museum store at very reasonable... More

It is possible to tell that St. George Botanical Garden has had more prosperous days, and that it used to be strongly supported by the community. There are still many interesting plants and trees to see, but it is a little sad to see that the island community is not volunteering to improve it any more.

this place has so much potential. Nestled in sugar plantation ruins the trees and flowers bloom gloriously. But it is obvious the place is under funded and needs some work to restore the pathways, interpretive exhibits and care of the plants. We went to the luncheon. It was nice but amateur in its presentation.

We attended the culinary students' luncheon and toured the grounds of the botanical garden afterwards. There were many varieties of trees, and most had identifying tags. The garden could use some upkeep and more frequent watering.

A great collection of plants and the tour guide provided by the Renaissance Carambola was very helpful/informative. Very nice gift shop.

We love going to botanical gardens on our vacation destinations. Not only is this a garden, but has a wonderful piece of history incorporated as well. We visited this month (April) so a lot of the plants/flowers were blooming. The gardens consist of flowers, plants, trees, structures, ruins, etc. The above ground grave sites were very interesting. I almost felt... More

We stopped here as past of a shore excursion on a cruise ship and I am glad we did. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the botanical as well as historical. The gardens are set on the ground of a sugar plantation that has been abandoned. The ruins are visible throughout the grounds. You should expect to spend a... More

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
