Photographed by Andrew, written by Clare Foster of House & Garden UK and published by Andrew’s new imprint, Montgomery Press, Winter Gardens, in evocative images and crafted words, celebrates the very specific, spare, sometimes hard, nuanced and moody, beauty of cold-climate gardens in this season.
