To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow. Audrey Hepburn

We’re looking for a Head Gardener to build on a legacy that stretches all the way back to the 16th Century.  

And as far forward as your vision and ambition can extend. (That’s pretty far, we’d imagine.)

Winton Castle and Estate is a prestigious venue about to unveil a 400 year old facelift and we want the wow factor to begin as soon as our visitors drive through the gates. Around every corner, on every terrace, by the loch and into the walled garden and beyond.

A gifted plantsman, you will have every opportunity to demonstrate your keen interest in, and exhaustive knowledge of, plants and their cultivation as you make your mark across this historic property. Combining your understanding and experience of large-scale gardening with your creativity, energy and passion to enhance Winton’s reputation as one of the foremost venues in the country.

You’ll be aided by the favourable Winton microclimate and abetted by a great supporting team, including three part time gardeners, three grounds staff and a forester. Not to mention a glasshouse, a polytunnel for propagation and almost all the equipment and machinery you could wish for.

Jobs like this and people like you are few and far between. With your talent and enthusiasm and our grand old country estate, together we have the opportunity to create something special and beautiful.

Apply today. And sow the seeds for a career that, like our gardens, will flourish long into the future.
