Sustainability is the theme of this book that urges the public to apply the fundamentals of organic gardening to their home grounds. Based on his experiences in applying these principles to three gardens in Britain, HRH The Prince of Wales provides practical advice to encourage fellow gardeners to garden with conservation in mind. After a discussion of the essential elements, the text, written by Stephanie Donaldson, covers the productive garden that includes vegetable and fruit crops; the ornamental garden; and the informal garden. Handsomely illustrated with full-color photographs of these private royal sites, the book reflects the philosophy of “gardening with nature in mind.”
