New Highgrove store opens in Bath

Following the success of the Tetbury Shop and Highgrove online, Highgrove has now opened a new shop in Bath. Inspired by the organic gardens at Highgrove and the interests of HRH The Prince of Wales, the Highgrove Shop, Bath, offers gifts for the home and garden. Among the products available is a limited edition range of cedar wood gifts, which have been crafted from the tree that once stood at the top of the Thyme Walk in the Highgrove garden. The two hundred year old Cedar of Lebanon tree was one of the principal reasons that The Prince of Wales was first attracted to Highgrove. Each limited ddition cedar wood item is presented in a gift box with an authenticity certificate. A collection of illustrated hen ceramics is made at the last remaining Victorian pottery in Stoke-on-Trent, garden tools and wooden toys are crafted in specialist workshops, the organic foods are created in small batches, often using seasonal produce from The Highgrove Estate and the lavender bath collection contains essential oils distilled from lavender harvested on the Sandringham Estate. All Profits from the sale of Highgrove products and garden tours are donated to the Prince’s Charities Foundation. The Foundation is a grant making charity which enables The Prince of Wales to give his support to a wide range of causes and projects by making charitable donations.
