'Anyone looking for a gift for the gardener who has everything need look no further'
Tim Richardson, The Financial Times
The First British Florilegium
For seven years many of the leading botanical artists from around the world were invited to paint examples of the plants and trees growing in HRH The Prince of Wales' garden at Highgrove in Gloucestershire.
Addison Publications Ltd was asked by The Prince to make a limited edition publication from these watercolours and The Highgrove Florilegium is the result.
Each Limited Edition Set signed by HRH The Prince of Wales
The edition is limited to just 175 numbered sets. His Royal Highness, who wrote the Preface and holds set 1 of 175, has signed each numbered set. All royalties from The Highgrove Florilegium are donated to The Prince's Charities Foundation.
An Entirely British Production
The binding of The Highgrove Florilegium volumes has been painstakingly undertaken by the best craftspeople in Britain from the gold embossing on the leather to the hand- marbling on the cover.
This is truly a magnificent Royal Florilegium and we hope worthy of the love His Royal Highness has for his garden and the dedication the distinguished artists have for their craft.
