Welcome to Filbert Press

We publish books about plants, gardening, sustainability and the natural world. Here you’ll find planting design ideas, horticultural techniques, and gardening in tune with nature. Feast your eyes on the best private and public gardens and find out how to grow mushrooms or make a wildflower meadow. Plants are the source of all life and by growing more of them we can make the world a healthier place.


Magdalena and Herbert Wurth’s practical guide to growing mushrooms indoors and outside is available now. Here’s what allotment gardening supremo John Harrison has to say about it:

“I can’t recommend Home Grown Mushrooms from Scratch enough. Even if you don’t intend to grow mushrooms, it’s a fascinating read. If you do, it’s an invaluable guide and reference.” John Harrison, allotment-garden.org
