The chalk garden, which totally defeats Mrs St. Maugham's attempts to cultivate it, is symbolic of her failure with her daughter and her granddaughter. Plants, like human beings, need a sympathetic understanding which she does not know how to give. Then the mysterious Miss Madrigal takes charge...

The Chalk Garden is a wistful and witty story of the need for forgiveness in life if new growth is to take place.
