I loved this book. The ideas were wonderful. I love winter activities but as a gardener, winter was always tough. This book gives you the feeling that winter was/is something to look forward to in the garden. Read full review

Review: The Garden in Winter: Plant for Beauty and Interest in the Quiet Season

User Review  - Ann - Goodreads

I believe in the concept. Piet oudolf says no plant is a good plant unless it looks good when it's dead. But this book is both cutesy and impractical. And nothing applies to my garden. Any gardening book is a good book, so it gets 3 stars anyway. Read full review
