Based on the life of Linnaeus - the 18th-century Swedish enlightenment figure famous for his taxonomy and scientific classification - 'The Garden' principally concerns the different ways Linnaeus and his gardener interpret the world around them. The gardener perceives plants for what they are in themselves and Linnaeus for what they are in relation to other things.
