Highgrove: A Garden Celebrated

Highgrove: A Garden Celebrated

Discover the true beauty of Highgrove in this stunning new book in commemoration of the beautiful gardens started by the Prince of Wales over 30 years ago. When His Royal Highness bought Highgrove House in 1980, the surrounds were just a few thorn bushes and lawn that over the years have been transformed into several exquisite gardens which embody his gardening ideals and organic principles.

In this glorious book discover the thinking behind each garden, the mistakes and the triumphs, and find out what the Prince of Wales has planned for the future. Lavishly illustrated with photographs and drawings, the book is divided into months sharing the dramatic changes that come with each season. Find out more on the beautiful ornamental walled kitchen garden throughout the year, see what blooms in June and take a journey through the Arboretum. There is plenty to discover with inspiring features from the Stumpery to the spectacular Terrace Garden that you could even try to recreate at home.

From what's planted each year and why, to the upkeep of the magnificent gardens, there is a treasure trove of stories, secrets and gorgeous photography that you'll want to revisit again and again.

Highgrove: A Garden Celebrated by HRH The Prince of Wales and Bunny Guinness, published by Weidenfeld & Nicolson, is available to buy from all good book shops, RRP £25.
