Last Friday, shortly after the news of the Gardens by the Bay’s bromeliad collection was revealed to the public, a member of the public wrote a letter to the local newspaper’s forum to sound his concern:
A quick reply from the National Parks Board (NParks) which is the organisation in-charge of this mega-project was published on the papers today in the same column.
It was a reassuring reply. I firmly believe that NParks would have considered their choice of plants because of the mosquito problem we face here. They will also take all the necessary measures to prevent mosquitoes from breeding with the consultation with experts.
So be rest assured, everyone and patiently wait for the plants to be up and the Gardens by the Bay open in two years time! Can’t wait to see how spectacle will look!
