Il-Majjistral Park, together with the Radisson Blu Golden Sands Resort Spa, have invited James Basson and his wife Helen for a special fund raising event in aid of the park, during which he will be giving a presentation about his gold medal and ‘Best Show Garden’ award winning design at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show.

Their idea for the design of their award-winning garden was a disused quarry in Malta and included indigenous Maltese plants. Some of these plants were never before shown in the UK. Since many were protected, the Maltese government gave Mr Basson special permission to use them

“Il-Majjistral Park is promoting the use of indigenous plants in gardens, roundabouts etc and the fact that abroad our plants, when used intelligently, are winning prices, shows how much we can do with our own flora. But unfortunately, more often than not, wild plants are removed from public gardens etc to be replaced by alien species which require more maintenance, more water and cost more,” the NGO said.

Mr Basson’s presentation will be held on Sunday November 26 at 5pm at the Radisson Blu Golden Sands Resort Spa and will be followed by dinner at the ‘Flavours’ restaurant.

Participants can opt to attend only the presentation or attend both presentation and dinner. For booking and for further information send an e-mail to [email protected]
