Tim is fifty, single and in a job he hates. As a result of a life-coaching session, Tim starts the Green Garden Project, which gives free advice on how to turn gardens into habitats for wildlife. ‘Habitat Man’ as his friend Jo calls him. His first client is the lovely Lori. Tim is smitten, but first he has to win round Ethan her 15 year old son, who loves wildlife just to kill it. Tim loves his new life until he digs up more than he bargained for, and uncovers a skeleton, one that threatens to bring out the skeletons in his cupboard too. Only Jo, Tim’s long-time best friend knows his secret, but can she be trusted?
Worms have more purpose than Tim, and a better love life. They break waste down into rich fertile soil; Tim just makes the rich richer. Worms copulate for three hours at a time whereas the closest thing Tim has to love is his lesbian friend Jo. Salvation comes from Jo’s flaky niece Charlotte who asks him three profound questions. Inspired, he sheds his old life to become Habitat Man, giving advice on how to turn gardens into habitats for wildlife. His first client is the lovely Lori. Tim is smitten, but first he has to win round Ethan her teenage son. Tim loves his new life until he digs up more than he bargained for, something that threatens to bring out all the skeletons in his cupboard.
