Filbert Press is an independent publisher of books about plants, gardening and the natural world. We publish books by authors from around the world who are experts in their field and have something new to bring gardeners, plant enthusiasts and nature lovers.

We published our first book in February 2016 –  the English-language edition of a book on plants for dry gardens by Mediterranean plant guru Olivier Filippi that’s a real wake-up call for what’s possible and desirable when planting in challenging conditions. This was soon followed by hugely detailed and informative book on how to make natural swimming pools by experts at the peak of their game. Responding to the demand for  detailed plant information and practical skills we published how-to books on making meadows, scything and cultivating mushrooms. We are proud to be the publisher of the esteemed plantsman Roy Lancaster’s memoir My Life with Plants described by one reader as “a joy to read again and again”.

From our planting design books to our popular science references and practical how-to books we hope you will find something here to inspire new garden projects and stoke your passion for plants. There’s lots more in the pipeline, so keep watching.

“Filbert Press is a new publisher and this is a great start. If they maintain the standards demonstrated with this book then they should have a great future.”
