Fifty years of horticultural knowledge in a book

Founder and managing director of Hampshire based Hambrooks, Norman Hambrook has just produced a 200-page plant book. With nearly 5 decades of hands-on experience behind him, he has brought together his knowledge and expertise to compile ‘The Hambrooks Plant Book’. Its simple non-technical style is aimed at both the inexperienced and more knowledgeable gardener or landscaper.

The book’s content is set out in a colourful easy to digest style that combines plantmanship with practical, concise information. A comprehensive guide to eye-catching plants, shrubs and trees, each entry contains a high quality image to demonstrate colour, structure and shape.

Norman Hambrook said: “I have learnt by doing and there is no doubt hands on learning gives you a deeper understanding of plants. I am imparting a lifetime of horticultural expertise in the production of this book.”

By sharing his expertise he hopes the book will inspire gardeners while also being a reference tool to teach horticultural knowledge to his own garden designers and landscapers. He also believes that the book will help customers to choose plants for their gardens wisely and help increase plant sales at garden centres because the accessible knowledge will increase customer confidence. He added, “[m]y book’s most valuable content is the fact it covers staple plants that have stood the test of time. Flower trends come and go and while some of the plants I have selected may not be the most fashionable, I have spent a lifetime turning jungles into gardens and I know what works.”
