GREEN GROWS THE CITY by Beverley Nichols

Perhaps it is a little callous to rejoice in the fact that Beverley Nichols has put away his hammer and tongs, and gone back to his spade. But no one who loved Down the Garden Path and the other books about Allways can conceal the joy that news of another garden book from his pen, brings. Country living was behind him; the city was getting too much for him. So this book finds him on the hunt for a place on the outskirts, a place where a garden in miniature might be a possibility. The place was found; the garden possibilities seemed remote. This tells of how he achieved the impossible, creating a miniature paradise out of a triangular city plot. Utterly delightful reading, with plenty of tangible information packed into the pages. A book which should prove an inspiration to city and suburban dwellers.
