A chance to meet award winning garden designer James Basson
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, Basson will be giving a presentation about his gold medal and ‘Best Show Garden’ award winning design at this year’s world renown 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 James special permission to use them.
There were some specific plants that are unique to Malta, showing off the incredible diversity of our unique flora. Plants used for the design included, Euphorbia melitense, Darniella melitense, Limonium melitense, Mattiola incana subsp. Melitense and more.
Il-Majjistral Park is promoting the use of indigenous plants in our 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.
James Basson’s presentation will be held on Sunday 26th November 2017 at 17:00 in the Ball Room Hall of the Radisson Blu Golden Sands Resort & Spa and it will be followed by dinner together with our speakers, at the ‘Flavours’ restaurant within the hotel itself, making this event an even more rewarding evening out.
Participants can opt to either attend only the presentation or attend both presentation and dinner.
The cost for attending only the presentation is €10 whilst the presentation and dinner with James costs €29 (drinks not included).
This is a fund raising event so part of the proceeds will go to help the park.

Reservation is only confirmed once payment is received.
Special thanks to Azure who have sponsored James and Helen’s visit as well as The Radisson Blu Golden Sands Resort & Spa for offering for free the use of their Ball Room Hall for this venue.
