Royal Gardeners
The History of Britain’s Royal Gardens
From Hampton Court Palace to the Prince of Wales’ home at Highgrove, from 1066 to the modern day, Alan Titchmarsh takes readers on a personal tour through Britain’s gardening heritage. He uncovers the stories behind royal gardens “both existing and those now only found in paintings” and the colourful monarchs who created them.

Fully illustrated with colour photographs, original garden plans, planting records, paintings, letters and diagrams, this sumptuous book charts some of the most outstanding gardens in Britain and includes advice on visiting them. Royal Gardeners is a book that Titchmarsh—an ardent royalist—has always wanted to write.

Titchmarsh’s shows can be seen on Home and Garden TV, Knowledge Network and BBC Canada.

Britain’s best-known gardening expert, Alan Titchmarsh’s 30-plus gardening books include the Gardener’s World Complete Book of Gardening. Twice he has been named Gardening Writer of the Year in Britain. In 2000 he was appointed MBE for services to horticulture and broadcasting.

...a must read for those of you lucky enough to visit some of these gardens.
