Garden Open Tomorrow

By Beverley Nichols

Illustrations by William McLaren

Prologue by Bryan Connon

[Nichols's] practical garden tips are spiced with his delightful sense of humor and strong opinions on gardening.

National Gardener

No devoted reader of Beverley Nichols will want to be without Garden Open Tomorrow. The sequel to his famous Garden Open Today (with its open invitation to readers everywhere to come see his garden for themselves), this is his final garden book and the summation of a long career spent enjoying and writing about gardens. Being Beverley Nichols, however, he cannot confine himself to a narrow discussion of gardening for long and provides entertaining asides on cats — including a hilarious critique of feline "ballet" performances — psychic phenomena, and the use of plants to commit murder.
