Hello! I’m Hidaya and I’ve been working as a horticulturist at the Gardens for close to 2 years!
As a horticulturist, I select plants for planting at different areas within the Gardens, monitor the health of these plants, and replace them when necessary to ensure the Gardens always looks its best!
When I have a break during the work day, I like to visit Web of Life at World of Plants, my favourite spot in the Gardens. The giant topiaries highlight the intricate relationship between figs and their pollinators.
Join me on sharing sessions to learn more about the plants that help bring the Gardens to life!
