Winter in the garden can be uninspiring. Most plants for winter lack colour and impact, and the choice is quite limited. But don’t hibernate indoors – one of the best features of a winter garden is fragrance.
Many winter plants that lack large, showy flowers make up for it with heady perfume. Grow them near doors, gates and pathways so they waft you with their scent as you come and go. It’s the perfect welcome home on a cold winter’s night.
