Riassunto: A glimpse inside Prince Charles' Highgrove home with its extraordinary garden
The Prince of Wales describes here how he has created one of the great gardens of our time. When he bought Highgrove House in 1981, the surroundings consisted of a brown path which ran around the house, a lawn, and a few thorn bushes. He explains how he has transformed the land adjoining the house into several exquisite gardens which embody his gardening ideals and organic principles. He discusses how?with help from some of Britain's finest designers, including The Marchioness of Salisbury, Rosemary Verey, Miriam Rothschild, and Sir Roy Strong?he has created highly individual gardens which have now, with his own ideas, reached maturity. He describes the thinking behind each garden, the mistakes and the triumphs, and his plans for the future. Lavishly illustrated with photographs which capture both the scope and detail of each garden, this book will delight and inspire both gardeners and horticulturalists at every level. It also features planting lists and information on the organic principles on which the garden is run.
L'autore: HRH The Prince of Wales spent 11 years turning his Cotswold estate into a model of environmentally benign farming and gardening. Candida Lycett Green has published 12 books, including English Cottages, and introduced and edited two volumes of the letters of her father, Sir John Betjeman.
