"The Hillier Manual of Trees & Shrubs" is widely recognised as an absolute classic in horticultural literature. Over 10,500 plants representing more than 650 genera are described in detail, making it an indispensable guide for any keen gardener or botanist. This is the definitive reference work on trees and shrubs. The horticulture notes have been compiled by members of the Hillier family from direct experience of growing plants and assessing their performance in different regions.
The name of Hillier is synonymous with the highest standard of cultivation of trees and shrubs. The continued success of the plants raised, selected and named at Hillier Nurseries has carried their renown throughout the world. Among their trophies are over 60 Chelsea Gold Medals and countless other awards.
