Smithy's Garden: Located at approximately 1,000ft above sea level, just one mile from historic Fort Frederic in St George's, this gently sloping Grenada garden is just under two acres in size. Divided into an old and new garden, Smithy's Garden is noted for its "wild feel" and also for the variety of rainforest plants which strangely flourish in an area in Grenada noted for its dry forest vegetation! Smithy's Garden Grenada is open to the public by appointment.
In the old garden, started by Smithy, in addition to large flowering trees, a variety of wildlife and colourful flowers, there is an orchard of mango, coconut, sour sop, a variety of bananas, avocado pear, plums, citrus, sugarcane, breadfruit and herbs and vegetables. Ornamental plants include a variety of orchids, Grenada's national flower the bougainvillea, lush ferns, foliage, roses and anthuriums which were pollinated and cultivated by Smithy herself.
The new garden situated where the "bottom lawn" used to be was started after the devastation of Grenada by Hurricane Ivan in 2004. This part of the garden is an ongoing project where many of Grenada's rainforest plants like ginger lilies and heliconia and costos flourish. Large pandamas add a dramatic effect to this corner of Smithy's Garden, as well as a flamboyant tree, several Chinese fan palms and yellow palms, ornamental bananas, torch gingers and rambling passion-fruit vines.
