Claire Masset

With contributions by Mark Lane and John Campbell (Photographer)

 120 pages

A view of Buckingham Palace in Autumn


This beautiful book follows a year in the life of the royal garden at Buckingham Palace.

Gardening insights and tips from Head Gardener, Mark Lane, are presented alongside atmospheric photography and an authoritative text, including royal anecdotes.

The tastes and skills of monarchs and gardeners over the centuries have helped shape this hidden oasis in the centre of London. Today the garden plays a key part in the busy calendar of royal events, including the much-loved tradition of The Queen’s Garden Party.

See how this working garden grows and develops through the changing seasons, accommodating a diverse array of wildlife, flora and fauna, from the National Collection of Mulberries to the royal beehives.
