Highgrove: Portrait of an Estate
The Prince of Wales has spent the last twenty years turning his Highgrove estate in the Cotswolds into a model of environmentally benign farming and gardening. HIGHGROVE: PORTRAIT OF AN ESTATE records the successes, failures and lessons to be shared not only by gardeners, horticulturists and farmers but by everyone interested in the countryside and in the environment at large. The Prince of Wales writes about his vision for the countryside with infectious enthusiasm and passion, providing a fascinating introduction and conclusion, while Charles Clover, the Environment Editor of the Daily Telegraph, superbly sketches in the backcloth: the history of the estate, the making of the garden, how wildlife was encouraged and the reasons behind the decision to make the farm organic. The book is gloriously illustrated throughout with colour photographs by the expert garden photographer Andrew Lawson.
