Description of this Book

When Prince Charles first moved in to Highgrove, the gardens were a blank canvas and His Royal Highness an inexperienced gardener. Now, nearly 40 years later, through hard work and passion, not only has he become an accomplished gardener but the grounds of his Gloucestershire home have been transformed into one of the most remarkable gardens in Britain, delighting visitors from all around the world. With a Foreword by His Royal Highness, this lavishly illustrated book brings together the history of Highgrove and the myriad gardens that he has created which reflect his interests: architecture, the arts, conservation, his belief in organic principles and, quite simply, his love of nature all play their part. There are surprises, too: as Prince Charles loves to experiment, his garden is one that constantly evolves as new ideas take shape. The Sundial Garden, Cottage Garden, Thyme Walk, Terrace, Kitchen Garden, Stumpery, Arboretum, Sanctuary and Wildflower Meadow - all, and more, are here to explore and enjoy.
