Rootbound : Rewilding a Life Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


'Breathtakingly beautiful' i'Tender and wholehearted' Helen JukesLONGLISTED FOR THE WAINWRIGHT PRIZEA BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR IN THE INDEPENDENT, FINANCIAL TIMES, I and GARDENS ILLUSTRATEDWhen she suddenly finds herself uprooted, heartbroken, grieving and living out of a suitcase in her late twenties, Alice Vincent begins planting seeds.

She nurtures pot plants and vines on windowsills and draining boards, filling her many temporary London homes with green.

As the months pass, and with each unfurling petal and budding leaf, she begins to come back to life. Mixing memoir, botanical history and biography, Rootbound examines how bringing a little bit of the outside in can help us find our feet in a world spinning far too fast.
