Author(s): Cedric Pollet
Cedric Pollet is the author / photographer of the acclaimed book Bark: An Intimate Look at the World's Trees (over 50,000 sales worldwide). In his next book, he visits 20 of the most beautiful winter gardens in France and the UK, showing with stunning photography the ways in which they delight in this often neglected season, using structural planting, subtle textures, and pops of colour from branches and berries. The second half of the book is an illustrated directory of over 300 plants which encourage readers to achieve these effects in their own gardens. There is nothing else available like this large format inspirational reference book, by one of today's masters of garden photography.
"Cedric Polletis to be congratulated not only for providing such stunning photographs illuminating winter colour in all its glory, but also for the detailed research he has put into this superb book." -- Adrian Bloom, president of world renowned nursery Blooms of Bressingham in Norfolk "This book is a beautiful guide to the best gardens to enjoy all that is amazing about winter in the plant world and the wonderful photography brings everything to life! Showcasing the seasons in a garden are very important to creating all year interest and diversity and for me winter is one of the most beautiful, where choosing plants wisely can help to create a dazzling display. You may think that the range of plants is limited but that's not the case as this book highlights." -- Jonathan Webster, curator of RHS Garden Rosemoor "I think it's a beautiful book that will be well received in the UK. The photography is brilliant and shows the gardens off to their best. You have picked the best gardens in the UK and I believe that people will want to buy a copy, including myself." -- Tony Kirkham, head of the Arboretum, Royal Botanic Gardens Kew
