First in a trilogy, Merry Hall is the account of the restoration of a house and garden in post-war England. Though Mr. Nichols's horticultural undertaking is serious, his writing is high-spirited, riotously funny, and, at times, deliciously malicious.

No more delightful garden-related books have ever been written than Nichols's accounts of the rescue & renovation of Merry Hall, a rundown Georgian mansion & its garden. No wittier, & sometimes wickedly satirical, writer than the urbane Mr. Nichols has ever observed the world of house & garden-or the characters who inhabit them. (See the excerpt on page 68.)From the Publisher:
Timber Press is proud to return to print a delightful classic in garden literature by the late Beverley Nichols. With a new foreword by Ann Lovejoy and a revised index updating all plant names, this edition should expand Nichols's readership. His subject is the most challenging and ambitious garden of his life, a desolate country estate attached to an elegant, if rundown, Georgian mansion. Merry Hall also represents Nicholss first collaboration with William McLaren, whose exquisite drawings grace the pages. Merry Hall, is the first book in the trilogy and is followed by Laughter on the Stairs and Sunlight on the Lawn.
