When she was a girl, Alice Vincent loved her grandfather's garden. Twenty years later, living in a tiny flat, it feels like a dream. When she suddenly finds herself uprooted, heartbroken, living out of a suitcase and yearning for the comfort of home, Alice starts to plant seeds. She nurtures pot plants and vines on windowsills and draining boards, and with each unfurling petal and leaf, she begins to come back to life. A compelling mixture of memoir and botanical history.
