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, photographed for the first time, has an extensive cutting garden used by the Duchess of Cornwall for the flower arrangements with which she fills the house.
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.

Great book and beautiful photos. Prince Charles has an amazing outlook on gardening. It was inspiring to see the journey he has taken with the gardens and his commitment to the environment. I learned a number of things I can apply to my little garden.

Excellent, excellent book, brimming with ideas. No metal supports for the Prince's gardens: he uses willow and other woods for supports, with excellent results. His woodland garden or meadow is beautiful, and the use of Indian Runner ducks to keep slugs off plants is funny!
