For many gardeners, winter is simply a season to endure while planning for the coming spring. The rich floral splendor they've enjoyed has given way to dull browns and grays tipped by lonely snow-capped branches. But that doesn't have to be: there are so many easy and inexpensive ways to add real winter interest to any garden. Two hundred color photographs show the diverse possibilities, along with site-specific design plans. There are suggestions for selecting and caring for a broad assortment of flowers, grasses, shrubs, and trees that boast dramatic winter flair, plus professional choices for cold-hardy container plants. Smart tips include using colored stones, adding bronze and wood accents, and maximizing the effect of winter light on plants.

About the Author:

Val Bourne is a plantswoman, writer and broadcaster who contributes regularly to the Daily Telegraph gardening pages. She has a totally organic garden in Oxfordshire, where she specializes in growing hardy perennials and cottage garden flowers. In 2004 her book, The Natural Gardener (Frances Lincoln), won the Garden Writers' Guild Award for Practical Book of the Year.

From Booklist:

The garden in winter can be as sensuously satisfying as it is during the lushest rush of summer blossoms, yet many gardeners fail to incorporate plant material that can not only survive but also thrive through the season's harshest elements. In a visually stunning tribute to this often forgotten garden opportunity, Bourne showcases fragile limbs festooned with garnet berries, delicate seed heads twinkling with frost, and ribbons of craggy bark peeling from mottled tree trunks. Such elegant yet attainable examples provide an inspired and informative introduction to plant selection, care, and design, while emphasizing the importance of texture, structure, and color. Although Bourne references gardens throughout her native Britain, including her own breathtaking property, her enthusiastic and enlightening devotion to winter's attractions more than compensates for the lack of specific cultural information, such as hardiness zones and resources for purchasing named cultivars, that North American gardeners would appreciate.
