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.

I wasn’t sure i f I’d like this one as much as the Merry Hall books since I’d heard that Nichols cut out a lot of the characters which make them so delightful. But I did like it very much, and of course he couldn’t resist adding just a few people to his garden tour. Read full review
