Summary :

In Catford Street, London, there was not so much as a blade of grass, nothing that was not man-made; the poor streets of a big city hide earth and earth’s power of growth under bricks, mortar, asphalt, and paving stones....two of the Street children made a garden in these unpromising surroundings. It was a little garden, but, as Vincent the restaurant-keeper said, nothing is just itself, and this story, which begins with the dropping of a packet of cornflower seeds on the pavement, ends in the changing of several people’s lives; not only the children’s, but Vincent’s and the rich Miss Chesneys’ in the Square.
