A Fish Out of Water in the Garden of England
When he can't get a job in London, an eternal optimist decides instead to start a lawn care and gardening business.
There's just one problem however.
He doesn't know ANYTHING about gardening.
Undeterred, he relocates to Sevenoaks in Kent; where he rents a flat, buys some equipment and promptly chops down the wrong tree.
He soon learns that stinging nettles and shorts are not a good mix, as disaster looms behind every hedge.
If you enjoy hilarious stories with unlikely heroes, eccentric characters and crazy misadventures, then meet Mad Annie Marsh, Nasty Mrs. Phillips and the Trash Monster in this side-splitting tale.
