The Gardens of Anguilla
Anguilla is a semi-arid, coral island, and is at a disadvantage in the horticulture department to mountainous, volcanic islands such as Dominica and Puerto Rico, with their rich soil and running rivers.
But Anguilla does have sunshine, lots of sunshine. And some very determined gardeners.
Given enough time and sweat, pounding of holes in the rock, slowly gathering soil via the beg-borrow-buy method, and huge cisterns to catch rain water off the roof (or desalinization plants as some of the hotels use), it is amazing how lush your garden can be.
Now you can see photographs from four very nice gardens in Anguilla. Just visit this web site:
We will continue to add gardens to the web site,
as more photographs are taken
and access to private gardens is arranged.
The Anguilla Local News would like some pictures of
private gardens. Please contact
to volunteer your garden.
