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). A wary friendship develops, and Briggs receives a packet of violet seeds from Wilks for Christmas. Briggs plants them, they survive, and it isn't long before he is gardening with other prisoners. 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."
