Harlow Carr: a wonderful winter garden walk

The winter walk is a delight for eyes and nose – and provides inspiration for gardeners’ own plots

As the daylight hours shrink and the temperatures drop, it takes something special to get us outdoors. Harlow Carr in Harrogate, north Yorkshire, provides just the right lure; its winter walk runs alongside 400 metres of path that snakes through the centre of the garden, planted with all kinds of delights to see and sniff.

The walk was created to add a new dimension to this RHS-owned garden, bringing six months of interest, from the fiery foliage of November through to the spring bulbs of April. It is designed to run on an east-west axis: aspect is important in winter, because the low angle of the sun’s rays lends plants a different perspective, lighting up bare stems and trunks that are obscured during summer.
