Here is a fantastic opportunity to see the Highgrove Florilegium up close!

The Highgrove Florilegium is a 2-volume collection of more than 120 original prints from watercolour paintings celebrating the gardens at Highgrove, and represents the culmination of over six years work. All proceeds from the book will go to charity.

Leading botanical artists, including Fay Ballard, Josephine Hague, Katherine Manisco, Kate Nessler and Jenny Phillips were invited to The Prince’s organic gardens at Highgrove, and captured in watercolours the plants and trees from the 15 acre estate which have been grown under The Prince’s stewardship. 

The University of Minnesota & Minnesota Landscape Arboretum have the 2-volume set in their collection and have offered a private viewing for our members at the Arboretum.

We’ll also be shown other rarely viewed volumes.

We'll meet in Classroom 1 upstairs in Snyder Building (the “old” building).

Admission to the Arboretum will be free for GRC members (just mention at the gate that you're there for the GRC event). Please, register for this event on the GRC website, so we know you're coming.

Also going on that day are a plant sale (all day) and a Mother's Day tea (2:30-4). Feel free to bring/buy lunch and make a day of it!

We hope to see you,
Great River Chapter
