About this book

This book describes the organic practices that have turned Highgrove into one of the finest gardens in the country. The same organic principles are also employed at Clarence House and Birkhall, each with their quite different conditions and problems. Elements of Organic Gardening covers compost, healthy soil and propagation, plant combinations and rotations, and how to deal with pests the organic way. There is a calendar describing what is done at Highgrove throughout the year.

'as valuable to people who want to transform their own gardens as to those who aspire to adapt their farming practices.' THE FIELD 'The text is inspirational, and the copious photographs, by Andrew Lawson, are enchanting.' GOOD BOOK GUIDE 'some fascinating practical lessons... a good, earnest, comonsensical tour of organic gardening.' -- Stephen Anderton GARDENS ILLUSTRATED 'down-to-earth advice on composting, rotations, plant combinations and propagation with some great photos' -- Pippa Greenwood DAILY MIRROR
