The Garden in Winter

Front Cover
Timber Press, 1988 - Gardening - 168 pages
This is a practical and inspirational guide to creating a garden that looks and feels good throughout the year, even when the frost bites and plants are enveloped in a mantle of snow. The great plantswoman Rosemary Verey shows how to use space, the patterns created by paths and walls, the shapes of shrubs, the shadows of evergreens and the silhouettes of trunks and twisted branches to make elegant pictures for the months when the garden is stripped of summer foliage and billowing flowers. She also introduces us to a world of brilliant winter colours - the delicate pinks and greens of hellebores, the rich crimson of holly and cotoneaster berries and the bright yellow of aconites and crocus.
