James Basson – Hot Gardening

James Basson joins us for 'The Sissinghurst Series' to discuss 'Hot Gardening', touching on the Mediterranean landscapes, lessons he has learnt overtime, and developing his gardening practice.

  • Booking essential

James spends too much time rambling aimlessly across Mediterranean landscapes from Greece to the South of France. During this time he has evolved a particular understanding for the plants of the Mediterranean and the landscapes they inhabit. Steeped in the history of man’s relationship with the land these landscapes are far from natural, but the synergy of man and nature has evolved over the centuries to create landscapes that are dramatic, raw and extraordinary. Walk with James through some of these landscapes to discover the lessons he has learnt over time and the way he has developed his gardening practice to take into account these lessons.
