RHS The Winter Garden is a celebration of the coldest season. Filled with gorgeous photographs that capture the very best winter has to offer, it is packed with design and planting tips to make the most of any size outdoor space, addressing not just the fundamentals of horticulture, but topics ranging from wildlife, winter containers and landscaping, to lighting, cut flowers and simply enjoying the invigorating outdoor space that is available.


Winter can be inclement, but with a little knowhow the garden can still be useable and enjoyable, and this book encourages the reader to make the most of what pleasures are available, rebranding a ‘forgotten season’ as a time filled with opportunity, interest and detail.


“Anyone contemplating a depressingly drab garden in January and wondering that to do should turn to this book – that space should be very different afterwards.” John Grimshaw, Gardens Illustrated, September 2023


"Rejoicing in what is so often a forgotten season, Naomi Slade's approach is comprehensive and thorough, addressing the fundamentals of horticulture, sharing key design considerations and offering tips on everything from supporting wildlife and landscaping, to lighting and cut flowers." Countryside Magazine, September 2023


“It is great to have a book which does not just concentrate on the plants associated with winter, but the whole winter garden.” Colin Crosbie, President of The Scottish Rock Garden Club


“A joyous read full of inspiration for anyone who finds winter difficult and their garden lacking interest…the book is beautifully-written and makes us just want to rush out into the garden and get busy creating something cheerful for the winter months. It would make a gorgeous present for someone, or just treat yourself! Well done Naomi for helping us to see the potential in our gardens and showing us the beauty of winter … a truly beautiful read, [there is] something delightful and encouraging on every turn. Highly recommended!” Karen Gimson, Broadcaster, blogger and garden designer
