Brenden Vetch has a gift. With an innate sense he cannot explain to himself or describe to others, he connects to the agricultural world, nurturing gardens to flourish and instinctively knowing the healing properties each plant and herb has to offer. But Brenden’s gift isolates him from people—and from becoming part of a community.Until the day he receives a personal invitation from the wizard Od. She needs a gardener for her school in the great city of Kelior, where every potential wizard must be trained to serve the Kingdom of Numis. For decades the rulers of Numis have controlled the school, believing they can contain the power within it—and punish any wizard who dares defy the law.But unknown to the reigning monarchy is the power possessed by the school’s new gardener—a power that even Brenden isn’t fully aware of, and which is the true reason Od recruited him...

Baker & Taylor
Possessing a unique talent for connecting with the agricultural environment, Brenden Vetch's ability has brought him to the attention of the wizard Od, who hires him as a gardener, but Brenden's gifts make him far more than he seems and could tip the balance of power in the Kingdom of Numis back into the hands of the wizard community.

A bit disappointing. All the kingdom’s magicians belong to a school that controls what may be studied. A gardener with strong, unschooled magic joins the maintenance staff and unknowingly sets the school on another path. Many characters, characterization mostly shallow stereotypes: it was hard for me to relax and enjoy the story for what it is, because it takes itself so seriously.

one of my favorites of McKillip's novels. Easy read. Definitely going-away-to-another-world reading.
