Garden Open Today
When Beverley Nichols first published Garden Open Today in 1963, he was already well known for his "garden adventure" books such as Down the Garden Path and Merry Hall, whose unforgettable characters still live in the imaginations of present-day gardeners. In Garden Open Today, however, Nichols attempted a departure from his previous gardening books; he sought to distill 30 years of practical gardening experience in an entertaining fashion, and perhaps to strike back at critics who whispered that he was not a "real gardener." Our new facsimile edition includes a foreword and plant-name index by Roy C. Dicks.

Review: Garden Open TodayUser Review - Karen Floyd - Goodreads
Nichols wrote this in the 1960's, when he was told that his "whimsy" was out of date, so there's not so much storytelling, and only one or two "characters." What a shame! But he still has his sense of humor and knows his gardening and plants. Read full review
