Synopsis

Plants for the Winter Garden extends the possibilities for the cold-climate gardener. Though most plants may go dormant in wintry months, there are many inspiring cultivars and varieties that hold their interest through the cold and snow, including brightly coloured twigs, buds, and berries, dazzling winter flowers and dried seed pods, and elegant shadow-making plant forms. Plantsman Warren Leach shares expertise and techniques perfected over thirty years of gardening in frigid eastern Massachusetts, including:- Incorporating structural elements like stone walls, paths, and hardy containers that keep gardens intriguing when covered with snow;

- Accentuating plant shapes which hold their form year-round;

- Siting and pruning evergreens for maximum effect;

- Showcasing trees with textured or colourful bark that stands out in grey months, and more.

Plants for the Winter Garden provides invaluable insight that will make every garden hold its interest throughout the season.
