    "[Bunny] Guinness . . . teams up with Prince Charles to detail the organic garden that he and a bevy of experts have spent decades creating." -Library Journal

    “The Prince of Wales offers a personal tour through the gardens in all seasons along with his reasoning behind the plantings and advice for fellow gardeners.” –At Home in Arkansas

    "Strictly speaking, Highgrove: An English Country Garden (Rizzoli), is about a magnificent estate that happens to have an exceptional kitchen garden. Author Bunny Guinness takes the reader on a tour of the property month by month.  It is a charming read and a look into the very private world of Charles and Camilla." -Palm Beach Daily News
