We are looking for an assistant gardener to work with our head gardener to maintain and develop the vegetable beds, the fruit trees, the soft fruits and the cutting garden set in the grounds of a private, country house. The vegetable beds partly located in a walled section of the garden and partly adjacent to a cookery school that runs in the grounds, are extensive.
A lot of the fruit trees are old, heritage varieties. Some general help will also be expected with hedge cutting and some of the bigger jobs in the rest of the garden. The gardens as a whole comprise both formal and informal areas, extensive lawns and hedges, flower beds, ponds as well as the vegetables and fruit trees. Applicants will need a good, strong knowledge of vegetable gardening, in all its stages. This is a full time, permanent position with good employee benefits. Applicants will need to be able to drive and have their own car.
