Winter has finally arrived, temperatures plummet and the first serious hard frosts and snow have arrived.
All good gardening advice reminds us to stay off lawns when it's frosty so as to avoid damage.
Perhaps now is the time to do nothing and just to look at a garden, covered in frost and ice it can be spectacular.
A pond in winter is eye catching and its hard to believe how much life remains when its frozen for weeks.
Grasses can also look fantastic with the winter sun glinting and lighting up the grasses. They are good value not just in the summer, winter grasses look spectacular planted in the right position with low sun and frost.
