A garden where cold is best.
To see winter gardening done by the experts, take a trip to the Winter Garden at Sir Harold Hillier Gardens in Romsey, Hampshire.
Developed over many years by Sir Harold, a renowned plantsman, it is now managed as a charity by Hampshire County Council and includes plants from its founder's trips to Korea, Japan, New Zealand, Australia and the US.
Within its 180 acres, four acres are devoted to the Winter Garden and here you will find 650 shrubs chosen for their winter effect.
These include scented plants such as daphne and witch hazel, shrubs and trees with interesting bark such as Acer griseum, birches, Rubus cockburnianus and species of dogwood, underplanted with bergenias and cyclamen.
