"The cornerstone of this book is a hand-picked plant directory featuring both established favourites and lesser-known collectables, all chosen for their winter-flowering performance. After years of observing how plants react to different types of wintry conditions, Michael Buffin explains what happens physiologically to plants in winter, how they respond to different types of cold - low temperatures, bitter winds, saturated ground - and what gardeners can do to help their choice
winter-flowering shrubs flourish. Tips on combining winter-flowering shrubs, using winter sunlight to backlight choice specimens, and getting the right balance of plants that offer different characteristics complete this guide. Whether looking to extend a plant collection or create a winter garden from scratch, collectors and gardeners alike will delight in the winter landscape evoked here."--BOOK JACKET.
