The Duchess recalled: “I remember the first house I had, looking at this garden and actually then saying to my mother, ‘Help!’ You know, where do I go from there?
“She taught me how to prune, she taught me how to plant, she taught me how to weed.
“I mean, you go around thinking weeding is easy, just pull out the weed, but there’s a great art to it.”
Rosalind had perfected her horticulture skills through tending the gardens at Camilla’s childhood home, The Laines.
The Duchess makes every effort to inspect her gardens at both Clarence House and Highgrove as often as she can, sharing the thrill she gets from watching her plants grow.
“It’s just the excitement of watching,” she explained.
“Every day I go, well, when I can, of seeing how something’s grown, how it’s evolved.
“You never cease to be excited by what’s there.”
“I think it’s the most therapeutic thing next to reading you could do.”
