Bud's passion for gardening is a mystery to his fastidious parents. He's happiest elbow deep in the soil, gardening to his heart's content. Although Mr. and Mrs. Sweet-William wish their son could be as neat and orderly as themselves, they adore Bud and can't be angry about the jungle he's made of their backyard. But Grandfather is coming for a visit and now Bud's jumbled greenery fills them with dread. They've resigned themselves to their son's quirky hobby but what will Grandfather think of the chaos?

Little do they know even the tidiest and most organized grandfather cannot resist the wild love he feels for his grandson.
