This book tells the tales of Percy, an allotmenteer, who hated gardening. The mere thought of all that wallowing around in mud and manure simply revulsed him.

But he enjoyed the peace and tranquillity an allotment could bring, something he could never find at home with his ever-demanding wife and their two teenage daughters, who regarded him as less of a father and more as a cash dispenser.

For Percy, his idea of heaven comprised of a deckchair and a glass of a nice homemade fruit wine.

At the allotment, you will meet Horatio Dodds, President of the Allotment Society and pedant extraordinaire; his ever-demanding wife, Clementine, a formidable lady with the voice of a cat on heat being attacked by a rabid dog; and Michael, a man so boring he could cure the worst case of insomnia in a trice, together with the other allotmenteers of the Birchford Allotment Society.

Following cancer treatment, Dave was left with depression and was unable to carry on working. He semi-retired to Spain and to help with his depression, started writing comedy to cheer himself up. Dave has had a chequered career history, accountancy, policeman, photographer and now writer. He is married with a grown-up son and three dogs. He is now working on the Costa Blanca as a freelance journalist and features as a writer with an English language newspaper.
