All material was shipped from Barbados to England, compliments British Airways, a major supporter of the country’s efforts at the show since 1988.
Compliments of the Nation News
President of the Barbados Horticultural Society, Victor Roach, was elated at the achievement.
He said: “It put us back in the top of the winners’ row of the show which is very prestigious to Barbados. It means we are still outstanding in our performance at Chelsea and it still has the impact of adding to our tourism product.”

Turner's Hall woods
Just north of Mount Hillaby you will find the last remaining
area covered in the primary rainforest that once covered our island.
Although a few non-indigenous plants have been planted over the years the gully is not dissimilar to that which covered the island in the 17th century. In 1962, following many years of neglect the Barbados National Trust took it over and this site in fact became Barbados' first organised natural attraction.
Well worth a treck for the fabulous views across the craggy, eroded hills of the Scotland District, named, by the original home-sick Scots after their much loved land of Robbie Burns.
This is a quiet, peaceful spot to enjoy the views from Pico Teneriffe in the north to Ragged Point in the east. It is a delight to watch the swirling swifts paraglide the warm air currents.
Barbados is blessed with many natural phenomena including tropical gullies, click to learn more
