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.
