When Beth Lynch moved to Switzerland, she set about making herself at home in the way she knew best – by growing things. The search for a garden takes her across the country, through meadows and on mountain paths where familiar garden plants run wild, to the hills of the Swiss Jura.
In this remote and unfamiliar place of glow worms and dormice and singing toads she learns to garden in a new way, taking her cue from the natural world. As she plants her paradise with hellebores and aquilegias, cornflowers and Japanese anemones, these species forge deepening connections: to her new soil, to her old life in England.
