A privately owned 25 acre estate in Hertfordshire requires a Head Gardener/Estate Manager. The estate consists of formal garden areas of a 1acre walled garden used for growing a range of fruit and vegetables and a 1½ acre ornamental garden with water features.  There are also glasshouses used for propagation and storing tender house plants.

The owners also own an additional property in the area which is less formal but also includes a paddock.

Good ornamental plant knowledge, as well as good horticultural technical skills, are essential. PA1 & PA6 certificate and chainsaw licences are both desirable but not essential.
