The current article you are reading does not reflect the views of the current editors and contributors of the new Ecorazzi

snipshot_d41g2dx6j23s.jpgSounds like Prince Charles has finally convinced his Mum, The Queen of England, to embrace some of his green habits. An advert has been placed looking for someone to “help phase out the use of pesticides from the Palace’s gardens, improving ‘environmental and conservation practices’ as well as maintaining a new organic vegetable garden at Clarence House.”

The position pays £13,500 and will no doubt potentially include some tea-time with the green prince himself. Charles has been an avid organic gardener for the past 25 years and, as the article points out, his garden at Highgrove House is considered one of the jewels of the organic movement. His latest book, The Elements Of Organic Gardening, offers advice on converting to organic and reveals the methods used at some of the palace gardens like Clarence House and Birkhall in Scotland. From the article,

“Charles is ably assisted by his wife at Birkhall, where she is “closely involved with the planting and the garden’s progress” and uses an extensive cutting garden for flower arrangements at the house, reveals the Prince’s website.”

It’s great to see Charles sharing his organic secrets with the rest of the world. According to the Amazon description, “THE ELEMENTS OF ORGANIC GARDENING covers compost, healthy soil and propagation, plant combinations and rotations, and how to deal with pests the organic way. There is a calendar describing what is done at Highgrove throughout the year, all beautifully photographed by Andrew Lawson.”
