Hillier: the Plants, the People, the Passion

Author(s): Jean Hillier

Writing & History

This story of Hillier Nurseries reflects both family life and the firm's survival through war and recession. It is an account of success and joy, failure and sadness that will interest readers whether gardeners or not.

Using the company's extensive archives, coupled with detailed research, Jean Hillier, a member of this fourth-generation family, traces the story of one of Britian's greatest horticultural businesses from it's very modest beginnings in Winchester in 1864 to the present day.


This book is illustrated throughout with archive material and photographs of the people and the plants that make up this remarkable story.
