About this book

In The Garden At Highgrove, HRH The Prince of Wales gave an overview of how the garden had developed over 20 years. In this more practical book he 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. Birkhall is photographed for the first time since the Prince has taken it over. The 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, all beautifully photographed by Andrew Lawson.
