“In this one-off documentary HRH The Prince of Wales takes Alan Titchmarsh on a personal tour of the beautiful gardens at Highgrove, and gives a remarkably candid interview about what this family home means to the man who will be King.

Alan discovers from the most hands-on Royal gardener in history why the estate has become iconic for all things organic. With Head Gardener Debs Goodenough Alan explores the formal gardens with their terraces and thyme walks. But the spirit of Highgrove is ‘managed wilderness’ and we get an insight into the wild flower meadows, the sewage garden and marvel at the power of the huge but humble Royal compost heap.

Celebrating 30 years of Royal gardening at the estate, the documentary features excerpts from a performance of The Highgrove Suite, commissioned by His Royal Highness and composed by Patrick Hawes. Alan at Highgrove is a truly in-depth and insightful exploration of this unique, dramatic, fun and enchanting garden; but it s more than just a look back at the gardens development. This one-off special is about unearthing the enduring spirit of one man s vision to connect with our past and preserve our landscape for future generations

The Prince of Wales has never been one to shy away from brave garden design and the primeval stumpery, with its upturned tree roots and gladed temples, is a modern interpretation of a classic Victorian approach.”
