Plants from Camilla and Charles’ Highgrove Gardens are on display in London and are described as “dreamy.”
The Prince of Wales and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall live at HIGHGROVE GARDEN in Gloucestershire.
Those who have visited Charles and Camilla’s Gloucestershire home have characterized the gardens at Highgrove Garden as “dreamy” and “beautiful.” Camilla frequently shares photos and videos of the stunning gardens from her Reading Room on her Instagram page.
“Original watercolours portraying the plants of Highgrove Garden are on display at a free exhibition in London,” Clarence House wrote on Instagram.
“Until September 26th, the watercolours will be on display in The Garrison Chapel at Chelsea Barracks, Belgravia.”
The exhibition has 72 artists from around the world who have all captured the floral displays of Highgrove at some point.
The Chelsea Flower Show, which runs from September 21 to 26, will feature “The Highgrove Florilegium: Watercolors Depicting Plants Grown in The Garden at Highgrove.”
The watercolours were created for the book ‘The Highgrove Florilegium,’ which illustrates the plants, vegetables, fruit, and trees that may be found in Highgrove’s garden.
It was released in 2008 and 2009 and includes an introduction by Prince Charles.
“From the beginning, it was my intention to try and create a garden that warmed the heart and soothed the soul; a place, if you like, of beauty and peace; a garden based on organic principles that would mark the turning of the year and the abundance and fruitfulness of Nature in all her forms,” it says.
“I was overjoyed when it was suggested that a Florilegium of the garden’s plants should be created, which would not only honor the garden but also give an archive that could be used to further the art of botanical painting at my School of Traditional Arts.”
Highgrove Gardens is handled in a sustainable manner by Prince Charles.
The gardens encompass a total of 15 acres, all of which are organically managed.
Highgrove House, the Orchard Room, stables, and offices are heated with wood pellet, biomass boilers, ensuring that they are well-maintained.
The majority of the electricity is generated by solar panels on the farm barns and a renewable energy provider.
To be 100 percent sustainable, the electricity generated is used in Highgrove House and the Orchard Room.
The staff cottages and the restaurant are heated using ground source heat pumps. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
