The rest of the exhibition was largely uneventful, as I spent most of the time perched on a stool, racking my brain as to how on earth you put stripes on a lawn.

A clumsy Australian is living in London, when he decides to start a gardening business in the UK.
He doesn’t know a weed from a wisteria, but relocates to Sevenoaks in Kent, where he rents a flat, buys some equipment and promptly chops down the wrong tree.
The Export Gardener is the true story of a forty-something Aussie, who stumbles upon the opportunity to launch a successful Australian garden maintenance franchise in the UK.
He has no experience or interest in gardening, but excited at the prospect of building a nationwide franchise network, he thinks to himself ‘How hard could it be?’
Struggling to deal with banks, suppliers and the odd angry neighbour, we follow his hilarious and eventful journey, as he strives against all odds, to establish his business.
We meet the Ferndale Mafia and discover that Stinging Nettles and shorts are not a good mix, while being introduced to a host of colourful characters, such as Mad Annie Marsh, Nasty Mrs. Phillips and the Tip Monster.
If you have ever thought ‘I want to work for myself’, or you simply enjoy tending to your own garden, you will love this wonderful memoir, described by readers as ‘laugh out loud funny’ and ‘a book you must pack if travelling.’
