The Hillier Manual of Trees & Shrubs has been fully updated by renowned plantsman Roy Lancaster and botanists from the Royal Horticultural Society. It contains more than 14,000 plants, representing nearly 800 genera. It also features plants associated with milder regions, reflecting the changing climate of the British Isles. RHS hardiness ratings are also included. The ninth edition of The Hillier Manual of Trees & Shrubs not only remains an enduring tribute to Sir Harold Hillier and the Gardens he created, but continues to be an authoritative source on woody plants for every gardener and horticulturalist.
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.
