This year sees the 40th anniversary of the purchase of Tetbury’s Highgrove estate by The Duchy of Cornwall. Then home to Maurice Macmillan, son of former Prime Minister Harold Macmillan, the gardens of this Georgian neo-classical house were a blank canvas for their new tenant for life, HRH The Prince of Wales. The former kitchen garden had become overlooked, a once tended copse forgotten, hollow oaks standing defiantly as a reminder of better days.
Fortunately, as Nick explains in his latest garden design article for Bath Life, the gardens we see today offer a very different picture; a series of outdoor rooms, each very distinct, each telling its own unique story.
