Meet Myles Baldwin, award-winning garden designer
Linda talks to Myles Baldwin, award winning garden designer and horticulturist who designs unique gardens with a sense of place, heritage and character, about a stunning show garden he’s designed for the Singapore Garden Festival.
Singapore Garden Festival is a biennial show held in the grounds of the Gardens by the Bay precinct. It’s like a tropical Chelsea Flower Show drawing more crowds than its English counterparts. Each year it showcases 10 international designers in a garden competition. We love it!
Singapore Garden Festival runs 21 July - 3 August 2018 with show gardens, orchid extravaganza, floristry and balcony gardens adding to tropical festivities, the cloud forest biome and flower dome. singaporegardenfestival.com
