The Royal Potting Shed By Highgrove

pottingshed

The Royal Potting shed by Highgrove is an idealistic representation of the Royal Potting Shed found at the Palace. The gardens at the Palace have always been a place focused on recycling of garden waste, encouraging British wildlife to flourish and sustaining plant life, with the Potting shed being the hub of activity. This beautifully rustic, yet practical space, houses products from Warrant holders, companies supplying beautifully crafted products for the garden and The Highgrove Shop.

The team at The Highgrove Shop work with British artists, designers and manufacturers to safeguard traditional skills and techniques that are under threat of dying out in the modern world. These talented, artisan craftspeople use sustainably sourced and, wherever possible, organic materials to create unique home and garden gifts and accessories inspired by the beautiful Gardens at Highgrove, the private home of TRH The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall. All profits from the sale of Highgrove products are paid to The Prince of Wales's Charitable Foundation.

As part of a special feature of The Royal Potting Shed gave away silver birch seeds for visitors to take home. Many of the trees found in the palace grounds have been planted to mark a special occasion. Following this tradition, visitors were encouraged to plant their own tree, to remember the Queens Coronation and the special occasion as it grows.
