When the time nears for his release from prison, a sullen Colin Briggs (Clive Owen) is transferred to a minimum-security prison, Edgefield, where he shares a room with a kindly older prisoner, Fergus Wilks (David Kelly).

When gardening guru Georgina Woodhouse (Helen Mirren) comes to town for a booksigning, she spots Briggs' garden and gets the jailed gardeners a spot in a contest for England's best garden at the Hampton Court Flower Show. Meanwhile, romance blooms between Briggs and Woodhouse's daughter, Primrose (Natasha Little), who have plans for their own "gardening."
