The royal garden of Buckingham Palace—a hidden oasis in the center of London—has been shaped by the tastes and skills of numerous monarchs and gardeners over the centuries. 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. This working garden grows and develops through the changing seasons, accommodating a diverse array of flora and fauna, from the National Collection of Mulberries to the royal beehives.

This lovely volume serves as an exciting new guide to the garden, furnished with specially commissioned photography. Follow along through the seasons as the Palace’s Head Gardener, Mark Lane, offers insights and tips from his many years of experience tending the magnificent garden and grounds. Buckingham Palace: A Royal Garden provides unique insight into the activities of the Palace's gardening team, such as mulberry harvesting and creating winter bouquets for the Palace. Practical advice is accompanied by atmospheric photography, royal anecdotes, and an engaging and authoritative narrative from leading gardening author, Claire Masset.
