St. George's Botanical Garden

Created among the ruins of an 18th century sugar plantation the Botanical Gardens are a wonderful place to visit. The gardens are planted on 16 acres containing over 1000 species of local and exotic tress and shrubs. An interesting blend of history and flora and fauna awaits you at St. George’s Gardens. A rich history surrounds the location of the gardens as they are built upon a pre-Columbus Indian settlement and the ruins of a sugar plantation. A cactus garden, rain forest trail and beautiful mahogany trees surround acres of tropical garden. A working nursery and a gift shop are available on site.

St. George Village Botanical Garden

Here's a little something to brighten up your Monday since it's back to work and school for all the busy bees out there!

You'll find magical honey bees busy buzzing the garden and helping us grow every day of the year. And don't miss our Butterfly Garden by the entrance to the Great Hall. Look for them during Garden hours Monday through Saturday 9am - 3pm.

Celosia spicata, also known as #cockscomb, is an #edible and #ornamentalplant in the amaranth family, Amaranthaceae. The name celosia comes from the Greek word κήλεος (kḗleos), which means burning and is a reference to the torch-like flower heads
.
Amaranth originated in the East Africa highlands where it is known in Swahili as mfungu and is now cultivated world-wide as a nutritious crop. Amaranth is used as a grain and its leaves are used in soups and stews with a spinach-like taste
.
You can learn more about amaranth and other plants when you visit us at St. George Village Botanical Garden
