John Cassels, a gardener at Botanic who has worked with Belfast City Council’s parks team for over 40 years, beside the striking flowerbed he helped design and plant in tribute to the NHS.
The creative flowerbed, which was completed this week, is located in front of the Palm House and contains a mixture of over 2,000 flowers, including Petunias, Pyrethrums, Lobelias and Alyssums.
Blue Lobelia and Pyrethrin Golden Moss were used for the lettering ‘Thanks NHS’. Mixed rainbow colours of Petunia form the backdrop.
