I tried everything I could to ease the discomfort. Rubbing, scratching, swearing. It only made things worse. I rolled in a garden bed, ran my legs under a tap and smothered myself with grass clippings. None of it made the slightest difference.
 
Apparently I had discovered Stinging Nettles, a relatively common feature of the local landscape and the horticultural equivalent of the Box Jellyfish.
 
Richard Harrison no knowledge or interest in gardening, yet he sets out to launch the iconic Australian franchise Jim's Mowing in the United Kingdom.
 
What could possibly go wrong?
 
The story that follows is a roller coaster of laughter and tears - from chopping down the wrong tree and solving a seemingly impossible watering puzzle, to the bombshell that ended it all.
 
The Export Gardener is a hilarious memoir that has been described by readers as 'laugh out loud funny' and 'a book you must pack if travelling.'
 
It is a delightful and inspiring story, littered with wonderful,eccentric characters, all brought to life amidst the beautiful and picturesque countryside that defines the Garden of England.
