Winter-flowering Shrubs

Winter-flowering Shrubs

By Michael W. Buffin
Winter is the season of intrigue and surprise in the garden, when sight of a single, small bloom often gives more pleasure than a summer garden full of flowers. As the growing season tails off, there is more time to enjoy the spectacle of a single flowering shrub and contemplate the complementary charms of bark, stem, berry, and sculptural form.
In temperate zones it is possible to have a shrub in flower for every day between November and March, and with careful selection the display continues throughout the rest of the year. 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. Here you will find daphnes, viburnums, witch hazels, and camellias to suit every taste and garden situation. 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 practical and inspiring guide.
In Winter-flowering Shrubs we join Buffin as he relates his hands-on experience of growing and observing plants in some of the world's great winter gardens. Whether looking to extend a plant collection or create a winter garden from scratch, collectors and gardeners alike will delight in the tantalizing winter landscape evoked here.

The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Trees

The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Trees

John White
The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Trees, Second Edition, is the result of more than 10 years of on-site, meticulous painting of individual living trees and their detailed parts. David More, a supremely gifted botanical artist, has contributed even more illustrations than the total contained in the first edition. The main section is devoted to 377 double-page spreads, which describe and illustrate more than 1800 species and cultivars of trees. The trees illustrated were selected because they are commonly cultivated in England and continental Europe, but most are also found in American gardens. Some are indeed native to North America.
A small percentage of the trees documented will not be hardy enough for the most severe climates; hardiness information is provided. Each deciduous tree is illustrated with a summer painting in full leaf and a winter silhouette. All trees, both deciduous and evergreen, are illustrated with close-up artwork detailing leaves or needles, bark, blossoms, fruit, nuts, or cones.
