Highgrove: Prince Charles Organic Garden

“The Prince of Wales takes (gardener) Alan Titchmarsh on a tour of Highgrove House – his own personal retreat and family home. Prince Charles gives a remarkably informal and candid interview about the outlet for his gardening aspirations, offering a rare insight into a royal passion. The Highgrove estate has become synonymous with all things organic, and Alan finds out from Head Gardener Debs Goodenough and her team what inspired the beliefs of the most hands-on royal gardener in history.”

Great tour around his land by him and his staff and good look into how he come to be a believer in and and advocate for organic gardening and sustainability. You’ll see things like walled kitchen veg gardens, wild flower meadows, composting techniques, creating comfrey liquid feed, gray water reed beds etc

  1. It is very generous of Prince Charles to share himself and his organic garden. The garden is gorgeous. Prince Charles’ aesthetic sense and is elevating and sustaining. I saw the film, The Royal Paintbox and appreciated it very much, too. Prince Charles is an adorable and wise man.

  2. This video has given me much inspiration. I have begun to read the book “Highgrove Portrait of an estate.” It is full of the same profound love and understanding of the natural world and of our rightful place in it. His Royal Highness, Prince Charles, has persisted with such courage and good sense to nurture the earth. The importance of this work must prove to be immeasurable.

    1. Hi Sophie, sorry for such a late reply, somehow or another I forgot about getting back to you. Yes I agree completely that its immeasurable that someone of his stature is championing growing organic and living sustainably. Watching this documentary or others on him has allowed me to see him in a new light. Granted he jets around the world talking about such things but so do many other people for business and such, hopefully the message he’s spreading and leading by example will outweigh the costs of pollution from traveling so extensively.
