To create a garden that gives pleasure throughout the year is the goal of every garden-maker. The greatest designers maintain that it is the garden in winter that sets the scene for the remainder of the year. Designing and Creating a Winter Garden takes the reader through the process of designing a new garden from scratch or re-working an existing garden, with winter as the key, formative season. The first part of the book deals with design considerations and ideas, including: assessing the site and its opportunities and constraints; designing the basic framework for winter; making use of low, winter light and using sparkling colour; pots, containers and statuary in the garden, and finally the maintenance of the garden in winter. The second part comprises a detailed catalogue of suggested plants and their uses, grouped into: evergreens; winter-flowering trees, shrubs and perennials, including those that are strongly scented; shrubs with coloured and textured bark and finally, unusual, striking plants to use as focal points. This book sets out to inspire both garden designers and enthusiastic gardeners to create a garden that is as captivating in winter as it is during the remainder of the year.

MEDIA REVIEWS

So I was very keen to see Sally’s new book and, after reading it, I can say that it’s delightful and will be of enormous use to both new and experienced gardeners. This book will be supremely useful to gardeners of all levels. I know it will always give me, and so many others, a feeling which Sally describes upon seeing the first bulb shoots in January: ‘simply joyous’. - Rosemary FitzGerald, Hardy Plant Society Journal., Hardy Plant Society Journal.
