The Winter Garden : Over 35 Step-by-Step Projects for Small Spaces Using Foliage and Flowers, Berries and Blooms, and Herbs and Produce
There are plenty of creative ways to bring vitality to your garden, with ideas for planting pots, forcing bulbs, growing winter crops and more. In the first chapter, Stems and Leaves, you will learn how to make a stunning door wreath from succulents, plant a decorative display of miniature conifers, and grow ferns in a reclaimed sink. Add scent to your winter garden with Beautiful Bulbs, where you will find bright hyacinths in glass jars, lily of the valley in jelly moulds, narcissi in white vases and other imaginative ideas.
Winter Colour has bright designs such as a window box with winter-flowering pansies, a vivid vertical display of cyclamen, an indoor terrarium with hellebores and violas, and a variety of pots and containers with small-scale shrubs laden with berries. Even the keenest gardener can find it difficult to keep an outside space looking fresh and bright all year round, especially in winter, so whether you want to decorate your entrance with colourful pots, brighten up your balcony or windowsills or grow winter herbs by the kitchen door, you will find "The Winter Garden" packed with ideas and inspiration.
