The Botanic Gardens are a development of gardens created in the 1920s by millionaire ship owner and plant enthusiast, Sir James Knott. Many areas have been restored and new imaginative planting schemes established, introducing unique plant collections which thrive in this exceptionally fertile site. The gardens are diverse in style, extensive and tranquil and peaceful whilst being stimulating, educational and fun. The manor house and a rural life museum are also open to the public.
The Botanic Gardens at Samares manor are situated approximately 1.5 miles east of St. Helier on the St. Clements Inner Road. Public transport from Liberation Station, St Helier or from Gorey (1A Bus)
