Book Now: Roy Lancaster Talks

We are thrilled to announce that world-renowned plantsman Roy Lancaster will be giving talks at select Hillier Garden Centres this June, to commemorate the publication of his autobiography, ‘My life with plants’.

Published on 23rd March 2017 by Filbert Press, in association with the Royal Horticultural Society, it is the story of his adventures with plants: from learning the ropes as a young apprentice to curatorship of the Hillier Gardens and Arboretum and a dynamic freelance career.

Hillier and Roy Lancaster have a close history together. Lancaster worked with Hillier for many years – time that is also featured in his new book. We are delighted to have the opportunity to team up again and welcome Roy Lancaster to a number of Hillier Garden Centres in June.

Guests at his talks will have the chance to hear first-hand some of the exhilarating stories in his autobiography, as well as the stories behind some of the plants we know and love today.
