Prince Charles is renowned for his views on organic gardening and his passion extends very firmly to his home, Highgrove, deep in the Gloucestershire countryside. A barren landscape bar the grandiose Cedar of Lebanon which initially caught the Prince's eye, it has, since 1980, been transformed by this remarkable, unassuming man into one of the greatest gardens of our time. In close consultation with designers such as Rosemary Verey, Miriam Rothschild and Sir Roy Strong, he has developed a garden that is an important part of Britain's heritage. Totally organically managed, Highgrove is a testament to the Prince's "green" beliefs and a wake-up call to all non-believers - a garden of Eden in the midst of a polluted world. This gloriously illustrated book is full of photographs by renowned photographers Andrew Lawson and Christopher Simon Sykes whose styles perfectly capture the essence of the place from the kitchen gardens to the woodland, the terraces to the wildflower meadows. Accompanied by the expert text of Candida Lycett Green, this is a fitting eulogy giving a readable and enjoyable picture of the thought, work and future hopes for Highgrove by the Prince and his gardeners. - Lucy Watson
