If you find yourself having to make a speech in which gardening is a topic, this is an exceptional and irresistible crib-sheet. Lincoln County News



Beverley Nichols (1898-1983) was a prolific author, playwright, composer, and media personality. Though much of his work has been forgotten, his garden writing has stood the test of time. His amusing anecdotes, poetic contemplations, and penetrating observations speak to all gardeners - from houseplant killers to nursery professionals - and capture the joy, heartache, and hilarity of gardening. "Rhapsody in Green" speaks to the true spirit of Beverley Nichols. Compiled by Roy C. Dicks and drawn from fifteen of his best titles, these carefully selected passages offer a tantalizing taste of Nichols' humor, passion, and poetry. Designed for easy browsing and casual reference, it is organized by subject, including favorite plants, despised plants, and the secrets to successful gardening. Readers will also delight in William McClaren's original line drawings spread throughout the text. It is a must-have for Nichols fans, gardeners, and plant lovers.
