We’re delighted to announce that photographer Andrew Montgomery and Clare Foster, gardens editor of House & Garden magazine, will be with us to talk about their truly beautiful book, Winter Gardens, on Wed 1st December 2021.

In winter, the garden takes on a new, almost mystical guise. Whether you are drawn to the crisp shapes of a traditional topiary garden or the anarchy of a meadow full of seed heads, there is beauty and wonder to extract from every garden at this time of year.

With a foreword by renowned designer Dan Pearson, this beautifully produced book contains hundreds of full-page photographs to explore twelve extraordinary and contrasting gardens. Some are designed by well-known designers such as Arne Maynard, Arabella Lennox-Boyd, Piet Oudolf and Tom Stuart-Smith, while others have been developed by their owners over many years.

Andrew Montgomery’s exquisite photographs present the winter garden through a new lens. Accompanying essays and interviews by Clare Foster explore the history, design and planting of each garden, along with practical notes on topics from topiary and seed heads to winter blooms.
