My Garden in Autumn and Winter Summary

My Garden in Autumn and Winter by Edward Augustus Bowles

My Garden in Autumn and Winter concludes the three-volume chronicle of a master gardener's year. Facing the "unwelcome" advent of winter, Edward Augustus Bowles (1865-1954) does not flinch from remarking on the decline of many of the treasured plants we have come to know in My Garden in Spring and My Garden in Summer. But this is no elegy to the garden. The author's encyclopedic knowledge of plants shines through these pages and disproves the myth that autumn and winter are only a time to put the garden to sleep. No passionate gardener will leave this book without a long list of intriguing and attractive plants to try in the colder months, or without ideas to keep the garden fresh and alive even during the darkest days. This edition is complete with a full update of plant names compiled by botanist Peter Barnes and a new preface by Charles Elliott. A map of Bowles's garden at Myddelton House has also been included.
