Prince Charles' Sustainable Garden Party
It appears they live very nicely, thank you, but with sustainability in mind. The garden at Clarence House was transformed into a showcase of eco-friendly mini-gardens. Each design featured recycled materials and water saving techniques that could be utilised in any size garden..... even mine!
But it's not just about gardening. Start is a charitable initiative set up HRH The Prince of Wales in 2010, with a mission to inspire people to start living more sustainably.
"Our goal is to work collaboratively to create a mainstream movement of people who 'do more with less'."
Here are just a few of the brilliant garden designs created from recycled and reclaimed items:
Mis-matched wellies and an old chest become a raised planter. Wonder what happened to the other Wellies?
Recycled car parts were fashioned into this scary sea monster.
More vertical planting to maximise space. These plants were in old ice cream tubs and recycled soda cans attached to plywood.

Thank you, Prince Charles, for letting us visit your garden. A jolly old time was had by all!
