Thank you for liking the actual garden. That is a complimentary- we appreciate! In your review you actually misquoted our price: it is US $15 per person, which is fair. Your admission fee goes towards keeping Flower Forest well-maintained - in the 9 years we...More

When I first showed interest of visiting this attraction, some remarked that I would be disappointed since I had seen Andromeda's and Hunt's gardens. Compared to them, they believed that this little place had little to contribute when it came to the "wow factor". I...More

The flowers are the best right now today than they have ever been in the 9 years we have owned and managed Flower Forest. Saying "'plants' were not at their best" begs for response. Were the unique tropical flowers (the amazing Jade is presently in...More

Enjoy a pleasant stroll along the paths in this largely shaded tropical garden. Visitors are provided with information about plants to look for at various points along the trail. Caution is needed when it rains as some of the steeper trails can be slippery.More

Summer flowers are out and the jade is into its second bloom. The garden is georgeous at this time of year. Thanks for the 5 star rating. We were slightly concerned to hear and felt that visitors might be turned away to read that the...More

Situated in roughly the centre of the island it can be quite difficult to find it but it isn't that far from the well sign posted Hunte's Gardens. If you are driving it is a real challenge getting down to Flower Forest when you take...More

I am not the owner, just a visitor!!
We will be traveling by bus touring around the island. Is there a bus route/bus stop that is near the Flower Forest?

I was wondering if we could eat at the café here without paying admission to the forest?

Yes! We have an indoor/outdoor cafe and you can relax to the sound of the birds. There is also a nice view off the balcony into the garden.
