The Garden is God's...every plant in it has a spiritual significance, so they themselves are what the garden is for.
The book covers the period from Ash Wednesday to Easter day, and continues to give practical proof of the close link between prayer and gardening.
In a brief introduction, Jane Mossendew explains how growing the book's featured plants illuminates Lenten themes including prayer, fasting and almsgiving. There is a plant for every day of the main Lenten liturgy and Easter Sunday. There is also a plant each for the Solemnity and Saints' days that occur between 10 March and 25 April.
