The Barbados Horticultural Society horticulturebarbados.com was formed in 1927 and their infamous flower shows were hosted at members homes. In the 1970's they started to acquire buildings and adjoining lands at Balls plantation giving them a permanent headquarters for their annual flower show. I heard about this society from attending other garden shows in Toronto and Chelsea,London. They have won a treasure trove of gold medals at Chelsea. I have been in the Caribbean for 5 winters and have never had the opportunity until now to attend this Show of Shows.
Outdoors were plenty of local vendors selling a wide array of plants.
A wonderful day out with my Bajan/Canadian gardener Deborah http://kilbournegrove.wordpress.com/
