    Situated next to Verdala Palace, in a valley just inland from Dingli Cliffs, Buskett Gardens was planted by the Knights as a hunting ground. Heavily wooded with native, hardy species such as Mediterranean pines, Buskett Gardens was commissioned by Grand Master Lascaris. The gardens also hold vineyards, orangeries, olive and lemon groves. There are pathways lined with ivy-clad stone walls and wilder woodland that allows for nature walks and exploration. From autumn to spring the gardens are full of wild flowers, natural springs and woodland creatures. The wood leads uphill to the more formal gardens of Verdala Palace. A good picnic spot for tourists and locals, the garden is the venue for a lively summer tradition – the feast of L-Imnarja, a folk festival and harvest thanksgiving which is held on June 29th.

    Buskett is open to visit at all hours and Tal-Bosk Farmhouse is open to the public every Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 to 12:00 and can be accessed by a path up through the woodland or from the road between Buskett and Siġġiewi. Buskett is located inland at Wied Il-Luq in Siggiewi. Parking is available at the site. The Buskett bus stop is accessible on the routes 52, 56, 181.
