As we can't meet people in person, Gardens Illustrated is trying to bring a flavour of them to you. We talked to garden designer James Basson, known for his Chelsea gardens including A Perfumer's Garden in 2015, across Skype from his home in France. Excuse the slight delay on recording, but enjoy what he has to say about his favourite Show Gardens and what needs to change in horticulture.
