Job Details


1X Gardener Team Leader Opportunity

A fantastic opportunity has arisen at The Landscape Gardener, sister company to The Chelsea Gardener and The Palace Gardener, London.

We are looking for a new Gardener to join our Maintenance and Planting department which services private clients in Kensington, Chelsea, Fulham, Clapham and Battersea with ongoing garden maintenance and seasonal planting.

Strong horticultural knowledge is a must, and we will be looking for candidates with practical experience in a similar role, as well as an academic horticultural background.

Reporting to the Maintenance Manager, the horticulturalists are paired in teams of two and work a set number of clients on a rolling schedule, as well as one off planting jobs as they arise. The job is varied servicing a variation of garden types and calls for a strong background in gardening.

The horticulturalists work closely with the Landscaping team and there is the opportunity to gain experience working alongside our Contracts Manager on the hard landscaping team as well.

Preferring to promote from within, career progression is very possible within our team. Our Maintenance Manager was promoted through the ranks from entry level Gardener within 2 years, so if you’re looking to progress and expand your skillset this is the job for you.

We expect all our gardeners to have strong communication skills, strong written English, be well presented, polite, hardworking, and ultimately maintain our high level of client care.

Working within this small and friendly team, this hire must be a team player at heart, with a positive ‘can-do’ attitude and be happy to muck in and help.

"Lovely little garden shop"

"A great garden centre based in Sydney Street, London"

The Chelsea Gardener | Venue Hire | By Word of Mouth


The Chelsea Gardener is a well-established outdoor living boutique occupying half an acre in the heart of Chelsea. For more than 30 years, we have been a source of high quality service, innovative products and inspirational ideas. We are equally proud of providing knowledgeable, enthusiastic and friendly customer service.

About Us

The Chelsea Gardener opened in Sydney Street in 1984 and was established by the second generation of the Fenwick family. In the late 1930s, the family had established several nurseries in and around Essex and it was here that they developed their knowledge and passion for outdoor living.

Realising that London needed a one-stop shop to help people create the best of their outdoor space, no matter how limited in size, they took over the large site at Sydney Street that was once part of The Brompton Hospital.

The Chelsea Gardener today remains privately owned and the family continues to ensure that their original values are upheld: to provide high quality, inspiring products and plants alongside excellent customer service, ensuring that The Chelsea Gardener is a source and inspiration for those who seek imaginative new ideas for their outdoor living

Working Conditions

The flexible and spacious indoor and outdoor areas also make The Chelsea Gardener a unique space available for private hire all year around. Guests enjoy a central London venue yet are transported by the surroundings to a calm and lush garden away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

The Chelsea Gardener has recently extended its premises including a cosy Cafe where customers and visitors can take a break from the busy life and enjoy quality coffee, tea, pastries, homemade and healthy sandwiches, soup, and salads. The cafe also offers a selection of wine and beer, fruit juices, soft drinks and ice cream from morning to evening.
