Highgrove A Garden Celebrated by Charles, Prince of Wales, Bunny Guinness
  

Sue Baker's view...

A through the seasons view of the gardens at Highgrove, started over 30 years ago, they are reaching their full beauty and maturity as can be glimpsed in this beautiful illustrated guide. The Highgrove gardens are presented in “rooms” giving tremendous scope for different approaches to gardening, different colour choices and for all-year interest. This approach also means that many of the landscapes are small scale and as the book shows there are ideas to steal on almost every page. Together with the Prince’s whole-hearted belief in organic gardening, this book, like Highgrove itself is an inspiration and a celebration of one of England’s most beautiful gardens.

Synopsis

Highgrove A Garden Celebrated by Charles, Prince of Wales, Bunny Guinness

The gardens at Highgrove evoke intense emotion. In January, the dramatic light and early snowdrops of the Stumpery are exquisite; the glistening emerald lawns and tree blossoms in Spring lift the spirits with a promise of what is to come; in Summer, the longed-for delphiniums in the Sundial Garden stand proudly to attention and dramatic leaf colours welcome Autumn to the Arboretum as the harvesting in the Kitchen Garden begins. In Winter the structural elements of the garden have their moment of glory as the year comes to a close and the cycle of the seasons continues. Lavishly illustrated with photographs that capture both the light and detail of this magisterial space, this beautiful book will delight and inspire gardeners of every level. It is an exquisite celebration of garden design, passion and inspiration.

Reviews

A superbly illustrated and engaging book. If you've not been there yourself, you'll feel as though you have when you've enjoyed this book. -- Alan Titchmarsh on The Garden at Highgrove Daily Express

This book had my eyes on stalks...The Prince is unstoppable...the garden thoroughly reflects its owner's passions, life, taste and sense of humour. And that is what a garden should be about. -- Stephen Lacey on The Garden at Highgrove Daily Telegraph
