Mot­t­is­font, Hamp­shire

Mot­t­is­font's win­ter gar­den ma­tures into a beau­ti­ful and unique land­scape, full of hor­ti­cul­tural trea­sures. Stroll along paths through win­ter-flow­er­ing shrubs and peren­ni­als, rich in colour and scent. There's bril­liantly coloured bark from dog­wood and sil­very or­na­men­tal bram­ble, while berries, fruit and flow­er­ing peren­ni­als also pro­vide colour dur­ing the short­est days of the year. na­tion­al­trust.org.uk/mot­t­is­font

Poles­den Lacey, Sur­rey

Poles­den Lacey's gar­den, de­signed by Gra­ham Ste­wart Thomas, is a win­ter mas­ter­piece. It has a wide cen­tral bed of bright yel­low win­ter aconites, in­ter­spersed with a va­ri­ety of pure white snow­drops, some dashed with streaks of green or yel­low. Three Per­sian iron­wood trees form the cen­tre­piece, draw­ing the eye up­wards to a dark canopy of crim­son buds. na­tion­al­trust.org.uk/poles­den-lacey
