The island of Grenada has a unique charm with a fascinating history and spectacular
scenery. Grenada has rainforest covered mountains, fertile valleys and stretches
of fine sandy beaches. Known as the ‘Spice Island’ because of its production of nutmeg,
cocoa, cinnamon, cloves, ginger and vanilla, the island is also home to a fantastic
range of tropical and subtropical exotic plants.
The island’s gardeners have traditionally surrounded their homes with colourful selections
of shrubs and flowering plants many of which are shown at the world famous ‘Grenada
at Chelsea’ stand. This tour is escorted by Suzanne Gaywood, the famous gardener
and coordinator of the ‘Grenada at Chelsea’ exhibits. She knows Grenada well and
provides further insights into this beautiful island.
