DUCHESS OF CORNWALL TO APPEAR ON GARDENER’S WORLD (CONTINUED…)
As for what she would like to do in her own garden, the Duchess spoke of the importance of attracting wildlife in.
She says: “I’ve got a little bit of a woodland garden that I’ve started and I would love to build that up more, I would love to put down swathes of bulbs, and I would also like to have a proper wildflower meadow.
“At the moment I’ve got a bit, but the grass has taken over and we’re going to have another go this year of planting more seeds, because I think, especially now, it’s ever more important to have these wild flowers – if we’re going to keep on attracting butterflies and bees – I think that’s very important.”
However, despite the fact the Royal has substantially more land and gardens to deal with than the majority of us, she still faces some of the same issues.
She reveals: “I’m very lucky I’ve got a big vegetable garden, but you get
the mice, the voles this year, all ate the asparagus roots and got into the strawberries, so you can never win, there’s always something.”
