Anniversary books launch offers insight into Hillier nursery's history

The launch of the eighth edition of The Hillier Manual of Trees & Shrubs, gave president John Hillier an opportunity to share tales of the book's history, first written by his father Sir Harold Hillier, and how he approached a new edition with the help of an RHS plant finder, a notepad and far too many new candidates for inclusion.
