  • Förlagets beskrivning:
    The Garden in Winter is a practical and inspirational guide to creating a garden that looks and feels good throughout the year, even when the frost bites and plants are enveloped in a mantle of snow. The great plantswoman Rosemary Verey shows how to use space, the patterns created by paths and walls, the shapes of shrubs, the shadows of evergreens and the silhouettes of trunks and twisted branches to make elegant pictures for the months when the garden is stripped of summer foliage and billowing flowers. She also introduces us to a world of brilliant winter colors – the delicate pinks and greens of hellebores, the rich crimson of holly and cotoneaster berries and the bright yellow of aconites and crocus. For much of her long life, Rosemary Verey was one of England’s most celebrated garden designers and garden writers, creating gardens for Elton John and the Prince of Wales. Her books include The Making of a Garden, Rosemary Verey’s Garden Plans and Good Planting. She died in 2001.
