When positioned in strategic places, winter flowering plants can add a focal point during the season and enhance the views from indoors, when we tend to spend more time during the Winter months.

Winter flowering plants can be very fragrant, and support wild life when other plants are dormant.

In late Autumn to early winter is the best time to assess your garden and decide where some specimens can be added to ensure the garden can be enjoyed from inside and outside.
