Highgrove : A Garden Celebrated
Publication Date: 27 May 2014
A celebration of one of the greatest gardens of our time, Highgrove, now 30 years on. Highgrove: A Garden Celebrated is a commemoration of the beautiful, mature gardens planned and planted by The Prince of Wales over thirty years ago.
The gardens at Highgrove evoke intense emotion. In January, the dramatic light and early snowdrops of the Stumpery are exquisite; the glistening emerald lawns and tree blossoms in Spring lift the spirits with a promise of what is to come; in Summer, the longed-for delphiniums in the Sundial Garden stand proudly to attention and dramatic leaf colours welcome Autumn to the Arboretum as the harvesting in the Kitchen Garden begins. In Winter the structural elements of the garden have their moment of glory as the year comes to a close and the cycle of the seasons continues.
Lavishly illustrated with photographs that capture both the light and detail of this magisterial space, this beautiful book will delight and inspire gardeners of every level. It is an exquisite celebration of garden design, passion and inspiration.
