Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Having gained expertise working in England, Buffin possesses an intimate knowledge of the surprisingly subtle yet magical displays that characterize gardens in wintertime. Such a sophisticated perspective illuminates the book's introductory chapters, showing gardeners how they might design plantings for dramatic effects with textured bark and glowing thorns, evergreen profiles, luminous bamboo culms, or ornamental grasses with persistent, showy plumes. Buffin addresses hardiness zones as well as bloom times for areas of the U.S. in a richly descriptive, encyclopedic listing of shrubs that flower in winter. Experienced and novice green thumbs with winter in mind can dip into entries spanning abeliophyllum to viburnum and be well-advised on a fascinating range of popular and lesser-known species and recommended cultivars. The cultivation tips accompanying entries will inspire, inform, and prepare gardeners looking for exceptional specimens to incorporate all-year-round interest. Alice Joyce

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Nice book but the writer discusses mostly UK gardens so some of the plants listed are very hard to find in the US. Also, because it's UK, it's mostly zone 5 and above. Not many plants for those of us in super cold winters. That said, it does show some nice winter pictures you could implement no matter where you live. Glad I bought it used. Will donate it to local library.
