Tour Overview

First Garden

Palm Tree Gardens

This garden is off the beaten track in the heart of untouched country, but not too far from St. George’s. Start by touring a two acre botanical garden which boasts a wide variety of shrubbery, anthuriums, bromeliads, orchids, gingers, and many other tropical plants in bloom. Add to this over 25 species of palm trees, and stunning views of the mountains and ocean. Stop by the terraced lily pond and take a peek at our water turtles and red-footed tortoises. Virtually all plants are labelled. The terrain is not flat, but walking ‘poles’ are available for support.
Activity

Flower Arranging

At the end of the garden tour, which will be followed by some light refreshments (typically fruit juice or coconut water), the proprietor, Lawrence Lambert CBE will show you how to try your hand at converting the beautiful flowers from the garden into attractive arrangements. This is done in shade, out of the heat of the sun. Mr. Lambert is a member of the Grenada Horticultural Society, and has completed courses organized by the society. All flowers used in the arrangements are grown at the Palm Tree Gardens.
Second garden

The Tower Estate

A scenic drive into St. Paul’s district, favoured by the colonial powers because it is close to town but noticeably cooler, being higher, will take you to the enchanting garden and historic house at the Tower Estate. A highly individual garden to match a heritage house, built 1913, that is unique on this island. The two acres of cultivated ornamental gardens and orchards are the result of the vision and dedication of the person who will be your host: Victoria Slinger. The beds have been designed to echo an English herbaceous border translated into a tropical setting. Within each bed the emphasis is on featuring a variety of similar plants showing the large range within each group. There are also smaller beds devoted to bromeliads, spices, and plants which attract butterflies. Dotted around are a number of flowering trees: immortelle, poui, flamboyant, king of flowers and the orchid tree, which flower at different times. The orchard contains many fruit trees: mango, ‘French cashew’, golden apple, avocado, guava, carambola (’star fruit’), banana and citrus, also bearing at different times during the year. There are also a number of flowering vines, the beautiful jade vine with its turquoise blooms in the spring and the passionflower, garlic vine and Rangoon creeper which can be seen all year round.
