Kurzbeschreibung

24. Juli 2009
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.

Pressestimmen

"No one has ever traveled down the garden path with quite the same flair as Beverley Nichols. The latest Timber Press reprints are here, ready to bolster the case."--Bob Cowden, Pacific Horticulture, Winter 2003

Synopsis

Writing very much for fellow garden enthusiasts, Nichols here tells stories of the plants and trees of his garden, in a chatty, familiar style. Amid the anecdotes there are plenty of tips and information about various plants. Nichols, who died in 1983, lived and gardened in England.

WITH a very few exceptions, all the flowers extolled in the following pages may be inspected-or perhaps I should say 'verified'-in my own garden on Ham Common in the County of Surrey. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

4.0 von 5 Sternen Entertaining and informative reading.....not a "how to" book 27. Juni 2003
Von Dianne Foster - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Every year, the National Gardens Scheme Charitable Trust ([...]) in the UK issues the "yellow book" listing details (dates, locations, composition of garden, entrance fee, etc.) about private gardens of England and Wales open to the public on special occasions when a sign will be posted saying "Garden Open Today." The 500+ page yellow book is a county by county guide to these gardens of "quality, character, and interest."
Beverly Nichols book GARDEN OPEN TODAY (first published in 1963) is the next best thing, a narrative tour describing his garden which before his death he opened occasionally to the public. The book is lovingly illustrated with `whimsical' drawings by William McLaren (one photograph of Nichols and his friend Reginald Gaskin collecting money for charity at the entrance to the Nichols' grounds).
Nichols was a "real gardener" who worked side-by-side with several hired gardeners described in his earlier books, including MERRY HALL, LAUGHTER ON THE STAIR, and SUNLIGHT ON THE LAWN. If you haven't discovered Beverly Nichols and you love gardening and/or visiting gardens, you are in for a treat. His books are humorous and instructive, and definitely for cat lovers. (He wrote several books about cats). In GARDEN OPEN TODAY, he takes you step by step through his current garden (he moved a few times and wrote books about several gardens) pointing out some of the more interesting flowers and features.
As usual, the best bits of Nichols' book are anecdotal. His chapter on flower arrangers (apparently the bane of his existence) is hilarious. Nichols was a "loose bunch" kind of guy who detested those who "tortured" flowers in order to twist them into unnatural shapes. He often said that flowers were best left in the garden or picked for a loose and natural arrangement reflecting the perennial border. I suppose I get a big kick out his anti-arranger diatribes because I come from a family of garden club members and garden club founders and have had many encounters with the similar characters. However, almost anyone can appreciate Chapter 18. `A matter of arrangement'
Nichols is a product of his times so his not-quite-politically-correct comments about women gardeners may rankle some, but those of us who grew up in less privileged times will be able to look past the semi-misogynist tone (and hopefully younger women too) and appreciated the interesting and informative material he includes. Besides, he spends more time on cats than women. I recommend this book for bedtime reading.

5.0 von 5 Sternen What a find! 21. Juli 2008
Von Jody - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
If Bertie Wooster and Gertrude Jekyll had a son, surely he would have been Beverley Nichols. Anglophile gardeners, cat, music and humor lovers will adore Nichols' superb story-telling in this book and its sequel 'Garden Open Tomorrow'. The illustrations aren't too shabby, either. As an avid gardener, I've jotted down the names of some plants Mr. Nichols swears should be in every garden, though I'll have to spend some time Googling to translate the names he uses into American gardening lingo.

The real juice of this book however, is in deftly hilarious portraits of hypothetical lady gardeners, retirees planting their first garden, and cats. In the hands of a less skillful writer these would be twee bores, as would characterizations of people as types of soil(attributed to Elinor Glyn), a chapter on the real Constance Spry and the occasional breathtaking sentence like one about lilies and music that you'll just have to read for yourself.

In the tradition of P.G. Wodehouse and E. F. Benson, 'Garden Open Today' is a more than worthy addition to any collection of lighter Britlit, and I am gleefully looking forward to reading anything else by Mr. Nichols I can get my hands on. Oh, happy, happy day when I picked up this one, I'd give it ten stars if I could!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Always wonderful! 13. Januar 2010
Von Bubbles - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I had to have a journal on my lap while reading this book in order to write down all the wonderful ideas and new plants!
Heftier in gardening tips, etc than his prior books (which included humorous distractions of country life and people,) it may surprise some who expect more of the same. However, if you love him and love gardening, get this book!
5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful book! 7. Januar 2014

If you enjoy gardening, you should enjoy this book. But I would suggest starting with Nichols' masterpiece: Merry Hall, the first book in a wonderful trilogy.
5.0 von 5 Sternen A treasure; not just about gardening 3. November 2013
Von V. SHELDON - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
You might want to read my review of "Down the Kitchen Sink" regarding the author. All of his books are wonderful to me because I love language and, more importantly, I admire someone who uses it with care and humor. Of course, the subject matter is important, but with skillful treatment it becomes both enlightening and personal.
