I loved this wonderful book. It is not only an expression of beautiful gardening, but it says a lot about Prince Charles. I loved the way it is presented, using the seasons as a backdrop.It has inspired me to work in my own garden, and whenever I feel tired and hassled with the cares of life, I see the ilustrations of this marvellous book and feel at peace knowning that somewhere in this world there is a corner of beauty and peace.
Just received this wonderful book about Highgrove - it is worth every penny. So well written, with monthly notes by Prince Charles, very informative text by author Bunny Guinness and astounding photographs through all the seasons. You will get so much information and ideas from this book. This garden was already on my "to visit" list, and is very definitely high on that list now. Would recommend this book to any garden enthusiast.
If you're a garden lover visiting England, you should look into taking one of the garden tours at Highgrove. If you can't go, this book (and some of the earlier books detailing organic practices at Highgrove) may be the next best thing.
Have 2 other Highrove books from earlier in its history which take a more "gardening" approach. This is a more "photography" book but the month by month layout is totally different and a refreshing approach. A perfect coffee table book but also fine for the gardener.
Marvelous garden, from every angle, at every season, created by an amazing man so in tune with nature and beauty!!!Spend the money, take the time and go see HighGrove - a tour worth every penny!
Lovely and beautifully written. The photos are stunning and the quality is superb. I do not think this will disappoint any Gardner, but will inspire instead. The info on organically taking care of such a vast estate is amazing. I'm happy to see the true soul and spirit of HRH in his love of gardening. It's wonderful to see his passion of keeping everything natural without chemicals, and nasty unfriendly composites to our environment.
I am a gardener and lover of English gardens in general. The gardens at Highgrove are inspiring and amazing. The Gunnera Manacata alone makes the book worth reading.Beautifully photographed, well described and a pleasure to own
This is a truly beautiful book! The images are lovely and you cannot imagine the various gardens thriving in the UK's climate. Very nicely written and certainly an inspiration to view. I will enjoy this book for years to come.
