Get more out of your garden in winter by planning, creating and planting a beautiful outside space
Unlock your garden’s winter potential and see the beauty and promise of the colder months with award-winning garden designer and author Naomi Slade.
There is so much to marvel at in a winter garden. As summer flowers fade and autumn winds strip trees bare, the season brings new delights to draw us outside, from the dusting of frost on bare seedheads and the long-reaching shadows cast by a December dawn to the joy of huddling up beside a fire pit to see in the New Year.
RHS The Winter Garden is a celebration of the coldest season, with stunning photography that captures the very best that winter has to offer. Discover the bulbs that will bloom and the ornamental grasses that will dance in the winter breeze; create unique winter flower arrangements with cut stems and dried flowers; and learn how to design a garden with winter beauty at its heart with hard landscaping and evergreens.
Find new ways to enjoy your garden all year round. Create a welcoming space that encourages you to step outside and entertain or snuggle up with loved ones, even as temperatures drop. With tips on supporting wildlife over winter, the best cold-weather crops to grow that will both look and taste great, and “recipes” for creating winter container displays that will provide months of interest, this essential book will make you see your winter garden in a whole new light.
