Overview

Most of us think of winter as the time when the garden sleeps and our attention turns to indoor activities. Yet Better Homes & Gardens contributing editor Suzy Bales lures us to the windows, the garden paths, and outdoor areas to witness the beauty and vitality of the winter garden.

The possibilities for creating interest in the winter landscape are considerable. Through Suzy’s eyes, you’ll discover the intriguing patterns of tree bark; the sculptural shapes created by trees, arching vines, shrubs, and seedheads of perennials and grasses; the outline of outdoor structures, containers, and ornaments; and the unexpected but welcome dashes of color added by conifers, berries, early bulbs, and yes, even flowers. Suzy provides details on the best plants and cultivars to choose and explains how to group them for the most arresting vignettes.

Suzy devotes an entire chapter sharing her secrets for creating one-of-a-kind holiday wreaths, unique centerpieces and mantel arrangements, and striking outdoor features with greens, interesting branches, berries, cones, and seedpods from her winter garden. Sometimes whimsical, always useful, her suggestions and ideas bring the outdoors in to brighten the darkest time of year.

You will also find descriptions of places and people who celebrate winter in unusual ways, such as Les Blake, the creator of "fire and ice" sculptures in Alaska, or the village of Cooperstown, New York, that decorates for the holidays with a flourish.

This book overflows with ideas for transforming your views in winter. Plan for the quiet season by following the suggestions of garden enthusiast Suzy Bales and your garden will continue to delight you through the year.

    A great book for both novices and seasoned gardeners

    Time is another dimension in landscape design. Every good designer and gardener should consider seasonal effects when selecting plants and laying out gardens. Winter is a challenging season, but with careful planning and design, it can be a season full of opportunities. Suzy Bales presents a lot of useful ideas and opportunities in ¿The Garden in Winter: Plant for Beauty and Interest in the Quiet Season,¿ such as the beauty of lines formed by the branches of deciduous trees, the pattern of tree barks, the views through windows, the ornaments, containers, garden structures, ice sculptures, broadleaf evergreens and colorful conifers, perennials and grasses, etc. This book is also a very reader friendly and practical guide for winter gardening, the information is presented in plain and simple English. ¿The Garden in Winter: Plant for Beauty and Interest in the Quiet Season¿ has 224 pages and many beautiful color interior photos. It is a great book for both novices and seasoned gardeners.
