"This guide to creating a garden that looks and feels good even in the darkest depths of winter includes chapters on design and colour, along with work plans and a plant catalogue. It reveals the secrets of the successful winter garden, the use of space and an understanding of the patterns created by paths and walls, and the silhouettes of trunks and twisted branches.;The book demonstrates how to create an elegant framework, and how to plan and plant for effect in this often-neglected season. A selective catalogue portrays more than 200 plants, notable for their winter flowers, berries, floiage or bark.;Rosemary Verey has created a garden at Barnsley House in Gloucestershire and is the author of "The Scented Garden", "Classic Garden Design", "The American Woman's Garden" and "The New Englishwoman's Garden".

Readers have come to expect great things from Verey ( The Englishwoman's Garden ; The American Woman's Garden ), and her new offering won't disappoint. "If our gardens are to be more than graves commemorating summer's beauty, we must start by using our eyes," she urges. Working with the express purpose of getting gardeners to look at "each tree or shrub as one thread in a twelve-month tapestry," Verey persuasively describes paths, vistas, corners and even planters that will bring winter's "extraordinary intensity" of color, its "architectural form," its characteristic clarity of pattern and its pungent scents to fruition in a season that most gardeners forget or despair of. Since she has consulted gardeners in this country, the author's British orientation is not limiting; her directory of 150 plants for winter gardens is zoned for our climates. Some species and hybrids are American natives, and many figure in her handsome full-color photographs. Verey's book is a delightful one to read by the fire or take along on a ramble through one's own backyard. " (Amazon)
