When Mr. Lutchman’s passion for gardening developed, he firstly bought himself a set of gardening tools. His
interest in gardening seemed to have arisen unpremeditated, coming upon him suddenly one morning when,
probably for the first time since the family had moved into the house, he noticed the patchy remains of lawn,
a ragged reminder of the previous owner’s industry. He looked over the fence and compared his lawn
enviously with the healthy green strip he could see in the neighbour’s garden. That same day, he set to work,
weeding and removing the stumps of dead plants. He went to the local park and uprooted clumps of grass
which he brought back and planted at evenly spaced intervals.
2 ‘It’s public property you’re taking,’ said Mrs Lutchman. ‘Don’t you realise you’ll go to jail if you’re caught
rooting up grass like that? What if somebody goes to the park, likes the look of the railings and thinks they’ll
take them home and make a fence with them?’ But, in spite of this threat, Mr Lutchman persisted. The police
did not catch him and with the transplants of grass the lawn flourished. Success stimulated ambition. He
decided to have flower beds on either side of the house and rose bushes at the front, and it was the purchase
of these items that prompted the excursion he took his children on during the school holidays. Mr Lutchman
became the happy family man, and was in a good mood, a straw hat perched rakishly on his head. Mrs
Lutchman, who had not been invited to accompany them, was delighted that this new air of domesticity had
descended on her husband in recent weeks, and that he was content to spend most of his spare time at
home playing with his set of gardening tools.
3 The planned excursion took them out of the city. At first the roads were bordered by fields of rice and
watercress. Further on, however, the land was dry and uncultivated, the predominant colour changing from
green to reddish-brown. They left the highway and drove along a lane for a mile or so before turning on to a
stony track. A large sign proclaimed in peeling, faded letters: ‘Plants for sale. Visitors welcome.’ They drove
through the gate. There was a rambling, red-brick house from which hung baskets full of dead and dying
plants. The lawn was being watered by a gardener. The house was set in an extensive, decaying garden
dotted with mango trees. The gardener waved at them. ‘Stop!’ he shouted furiously. ‘This is private property
you know.’ Mr Lutchman was losing his temper. ‘We want to buy some plants,’ he said.
4 The main part of the garden stretched behind the house. Mr Lutchman’s eye was caught by an orchid and
he bought it. ‘I’ll give it to you at half price,’ said the gardener. ‘It’s already half dead.’ Encouraged by the
logic of this generosity, Mr Lutchman bought six rose bushes too.
5 While the gardener went away to make up the bill, Mr Lutchman saw a young avocado tree.He was
tempted. There was nobody in sight and nearby was a little gate. Could he not put the tree outside the gate
and collect it later when they were driving back? Swooping down, he snatched up the tree. The gardener,
coming up behind him, tapped him on the shoulder, making small, scolding noises. When Mr Lutchman
protested that he was about to come looking for him to have the price added to his bill, the gardener wagged
a finger at him. Later, in his ‘office’, a dilapidated old shed used mainly for storing tools, he started to
enumerate the prices of the various items with exaggerated care to disguise the fact that he was making up
the prices as he went along.

6 When they were planted in Mr Lutchman’s garden, the orchid and the roses were a great success. The
avocado tree, however, worried him. He had planted it in the back yard where there was more room and
where, ironically, he felt it was less likely to be stolen. The tree grew slowly and reluctantly and seemed on
several occasions to be on the point of dying. It weighed heavily on his mind and Mr Lutchman, overcome by
guilt, finally confessed to his wife. ‘It’s because I tried to steal it,’ he said.
7 Comprehension dawned. ‘That’s the exact reason why it doesn’t grow,’ she said. ‘Crime never pays.
Q. Write an email to Mr. Lutchman mentioning new ideas and plants that you have grown in your own garden
during the summer.
