In case you didn’t know, Prince Charles fancies himself quite the horticulturalist. Charles is also a big proponent of organic and sustainable gardening and while he’s never been shy about that, he’s going above and beyond the call of royal duty for a week in April. The future king of England will open the magnificent grounds at his Highgrove House in Gloucestershire for a special garden festival and anyone — that’s right, anyone — can check it out.
The event will be open to the public and guests can listen to experts like royal florist Shane Connolly, who designed the floral arrangements for Prince William and Duchess Kate‘s wedding.
“Highgrove’s first garden festival is an opportunity to share the expertise of some of the most renowned horticulturists, garden designers and wildlife experts,” said Chris Prescott, Chief Executive at Highgrove Enterprises, in a statement.
But we have a feeling what people are dying to see up close and personal are the stunning treehouses and play areas that Charles had brought in to transform the Royal Gardens at Highgrove into a toddler-friendly Xanadu.
Highgrove: The Garden Celebrated runs from April 11-16. Admission prices start at $25 with all profits going to The Prince of Wales’ Charitable Foundation. For more information, head to Highgrove’s official site.
