Beautiful book with lots of pictures and illustrations detailing how the Prince of Wales created a garden at his country house and principal residence. Lots of good advice on organic gardening too.
Of course it helps to have unlimited funds and a cadre of experienced gardeners who do the heavy lifting.

Turns out Prince Charles really wasn't a whacko, he was just really ahead of his time regarding organic gardening! Very interesting and gorgeous book about the gardens at his primary residence.

I really loved this. I didn't read it word for word but the pictures alone make this book stand out. Lots of interesting insight about Charles, in my opinion.

I was rather surprised to find that HRH got his wellies dirty in pursuit of his perfect garden.

And what would your garden look like if you had unlimited wealth and time to lavish upon it?
