Winter need never be a dead season, with empty beds awaiting the first shoots of spring. As autumn leaves fall, shrubs and trees reveal vibrant stems, textural bark and filigree silhouettes. Evergreen foliage in all its hues and variegations adds life to the planting. Fragile flowers lace the air with fragrance, a lively contrast to summer's legacy of dried grasses and seedheads. Enjoyed in the open air or through the window, the winter garden has a unique magic, whether the weather is misty and grey or frosty and bright. This books shows you how, with a little thought and clever planting, there can be as much color and interest in the garden in winter as in any other season. What can I plant to provide color in the garden during winter? Which winter-flowering shrubs have the most fragrant flowers? Which evergreens can I plant to brighten a shady spot in winter? What can I grow to cut for winter decoration in the house? How can I get long, bright stems on my dogwoods? What can I plant with hellebores for summer color? Are there any bulbs that will flower before the daffodils? What can I put in pots for the winter to replace bedding plants? Why does my holly fail to produce any berries? Book jacket.
