From the Prince of Wales, an intimate guide to his Royal gardens and pioneering organic approach to creating world-class beauty. For twenty-six years, the Prince of Wales has passionately honed the organic practices used at Highgrove, Their Royal Highnesses' family home in Gloucestershire, as well as in his other gardens at Birkhall in the Scottish Highlands and Clarence House in central London. Now, alongside Andrew Lawson's elegant photographs and withCountry Livinggardening editor Stephanie Donaldson, the Prince's vivid elucidation of his techniques for maintaining healthy soil, planting varieties, and sustaining an ecosystem "in harmony with the natural laws and rhythms of the universe of which we are an integral part" offers a wealth of wisdom to delight and inspire any gardener. His practices, based on a deep respect for nature, can be adapted to almost any garden, large or small. The Prince is hands-on in his gardens, and it is this passion that reveals itself intimately to be at the heart ofThe Elements of Organic Gardening. 200 full-color photographs.

Excellent, excellent book, brimming with ideas. No metal supports for the Prince's gardens: he uses willow and other woods for supports, with excellent results. His woodland garden or meadow is beautiful, and the use of Indian Runner ducks to keep slugs off plants is funny!
