A Sidcup-based business jokily offering customers the opportunity to have their lady gardens trimmed by naked men has gone viral.

When saucy Gary Warner posted a picture of a nude man, clutching a pair of secateurs and half-way up a ladder, he was hoping to drum up local interest in his gardening company.

However, since setting up the Trim Your Bush Gardening Services Facebook page on May 23, the picture has been shared more than 2,400 times – with interest coming in from the States, Australia and continental Europe.

The 50-year-old personal trainer’s small business currently only serves Dartford, Bexley, Chislehurst, Orpington, Mottingham, Eltham and the surrounding areas.

Mr Warner, who lives in Chislehurst Road, describes himself as a one-man band aided by 24-year-old Lewis Scothron.

He told News Shopper: “It’s the most famous bum on Facebook at the moment. I am getting all kinds of comments.

“I thought it makes a bit of an impact, and then people will get bored.

“But it’s not slowing down, the amount of comments from all over the world. We will be working in the States soon.

“It’s garnered so much interest we have just left it. It’s really taken off - it’s ridiculous. It’s certainly gone global.

“I put a couple of photos of Lewis on because he is in boxing training locally.

“I thought, given the demographic we are reaching out to at the moment, that that would go down quite well.

“My friends think it’s hilarious. They didn’t think I would have the balls to do it. My fiancée thinks it’s really funny.”

Mr Warner is now promising to strip off and do the bushes in the buff when the great British summer finally returns.

He added: “We have been asked a few times already (to garden in the nude). We’re up for anything but it’s not warm enough yet.

“You would have to be careful, you don’t want to slip down the ladder it could be dangerous.”

However, sadly Facebook did not appreciate the joke and would not let Mr Warner promote his post as an advert – because it contravenes their nudity regulations.

Mr Warner told his followers: “Because of the bare bum and general naughtiness of my photo Facebook won’t let me have it as an advert.

“I refuse to take it down so please share as much as you can and thanks for your support you lovely lot.”

The post has also attracted hundreds of hilarious comments.

One woman wrote: “I think the neighbours will have a shock but he would be good”.

Another added: “I snorted my coffee through my nose at some of these comments. Thanks for making my day”.
