Ask a question

James Shirley Hibberd (1825-1890) was one of the most popular and successful gardening writers of the Victorian era. He promoted town gardening, aquariums, bee-keeping, vegetarianism, water recycling, environmental conservation and the prevention of cruelty to animals and birds, all before they were taken up as 'causes' in the twentieth century. He had the courage of his convictions and believed that if he had learnt to do things himself, he could teach other people the same things.

If you think home vegetable gardening, urban bee-keeping and vegetarianism are new, then think again. Shirley Hibberd could be your hero, as he was indulging himself in these things 150 years ago.
