Inverewe is an iconic woodland garden, benefitting from the effects of the Gulf Stream, tucked in the north-west of Scotland.  Although relatively remote it has an international reputation as a “plantsman’s paradise”, and is generally held to be one of the jewels of the Trust’s garden portfolio.  Its exotic plants, cultivated since the late 19th century, include highlights such as Chinese rhododendrons, Tasmanian eucalypts, New Zealand daisy bushes, Chilean lantern trees and South African bulbs. One of the best-loved features of Inverewe is the ornamental, organically cultivated fruit and vegetable Walled Garden. The successful candidate will have responsibility for maintaining the high standards of this very significant visitor attraction.
