The Hillier Gardener's Guide to Shrubs is one of the lead titles in a new series of gardening books from David and Charles working in partnership with Hillier, Britain's most respected plantsmen. The Hillier stand at the world-renowned Chelsea Flower Show has won an astonishing 59 Gold Medals with an unbroken record of Golds since 1945. Series Consultant and author of The Hillier Gardener's Guide to Shrubs is Andrew McIndoe, who has designed the Hillier Chelsea stand for the last 15 years. Andrew is Deputy Managing Director of Hillier. Hillier and David and Charles have been working together since 1973, when the Hillier Manual of Trees and Shrubs was first published. The standard book on its subject, it has been in print continuously since then. The all new Hillier Gardener's Guide series sets new standards in garden publishing, with a unique mix of practical advice and inspiration, all backed by Hillier's 140 years of experience in the gardening trade.

This is a well produced and very well illustrated general guide to shrubs. Perhaps not really suitable for anyone with gardening experience but ideal fo a relative beginner.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent guide to color, seasons, soil, light 26 April 2005
By Amy E. Menzer - Published on
I love this book-- it includes numerous unusual shrub varieties throughout and is organized in a way I find very useful in planning my garden-- sections on color include purples, silvers, variegated, etc and well as on plant combinations to make the most or colors. Sections on the seasons help plan for interest throughout the year, whatever the height and light conditions you are facing. Sections on soils and light help with grouping plants that will thrive better together. Throughout, suggested good companions of other shrubs or perennials are helpful and inspiring. The photos are gorgeous. As I continue planning, I keep coming back to different sections to inspire me with different plants I hadn't considered. While the information on planting, pruning, and other care for different shrubs is less extensive in many cases, notice is often given where a shrub is fussy, dislikes wet soils, or where blooms are delayed for several years, for example. This is an excellent book for helping you envision and plan-- or revamp-- your garden.
