The Prince of Wales is to host a garden party at Highgrove in aid of charity Garden Organic, of which he is patron.
He will host the reception tomorrow and will welcome representatives of the charity, personal guests, sponsors and celebrities to enjoy talks and have a chance to network with others with similar interests.
Among the guests will be Blue Peter gardener Chris Collins, John Lea from Cheshire-based cereal manufacturer Mornflake, one of the companies that is sponsoring the event, and corporate guests from Hewlett Packard, Seeds of Change and other influential organisations. Michelin-starred chef Raymond Blanc, who is Garden Organic’s vice-president, will also be in attendance. It is thought that the Prince will greet guests on arrival and give a short speech.
The charity was set up to promote organic gardening and its latest campaign aims to persuade garden centres across Britain to stock peat-free compost.
