A garden in winter need not be grey and neglected: this book is packed with hints and tips to ensure enjoyment of your garden through the forgotten season. Val Bourne suggests trees, shrubs, seedheads, berries and evergreens that shine in winter. Her selections include interesting shapes and textures, rich colours - greens, golds, reds and purples, silvers and greys - and early flowers for the ground, containers and walls. She also shows how to create eye-catching areas using pebbles, gravel, stone, wood and bronze. Even the weather will help your scheme when a touch of frost adds a glittering finish!
