Years ago, like so many of the Black diaspora, Marchelle Farrell left behind the pristine beaches and emerald hills of Trinidad. Now she moves again for the verdant, peaceful surroundings of the English countryside. These relocations at first appear as opportunity. But when placed within the context of a worldwide pandemic, and ongoing racial protests, the trauma and upheaval of colonialism that have inexorably led her to this house and garden begin to be unearthed. A psychiatrist and specialist in talking therapies, Marchelle attempts to unpack this complex and emotional question while she tends to her new garden. Through her care for the unusual - and often unlikely - flora and fauna that is contained within it, she discovers that her two apparently conflicting identities are far more intertwined than she had previously realised.
