Excerpt from Official Guide to the Botanic Gardens, Dominica: Illustrated With an Index of the Principal Plants
The first steps towards the establishment of a Botanic Garden proper in Dominica were taken near the close of 1889, and in January, 1891 the present site was purchased by the Government. Previous to this time a small nursery had been maintained in the grounds of Government House.
The first Curator in Dominica was Mr. Charles Murray, of the Edinburgh Botanic Gardens, who was appointed in September, 1889. He was transferred to Grenada in the following year, and succeeded by Mr. Henry F. Green in August, 1890. To Mr. Green fell the work of beginning the laying out of the grounds of the present garden. Mr. Green resigned in February, 1892, and was succeeded by the present Curator, Mr. Joseph Jones, of the Royal Gardens, Kew, who took up his duties in March, 1892.
