Part-time Skilled Gardener
Part-time Skilled Gardener required
An excellent opportunity has arisen for a skilled self-employed gardener/horticulturist to contribute to a beautiful private garden in Warwickshire. This position will suit a qualified and experienced plantsperson with room in their schedule for two to three days per week on a year-round basis.
Set within a wider 40-50-acre estate, the formal 2-acre garden compliments a Georgian country house and comprises extensive herbaceous borders, a parterre, a cut flower garden, mixed beds, box hedging, topiary, mature native and exotic trees, bulb plantings, rose gardens, lavender, lawns, walled garden areas, an acer garden, a pool, and a woodland area.
Working alongside the property owners and an existing gardener, the position will involve the care and maintenance of the above areas, to include species-specific pruning and the herbaceous plantings in particular. Applicants should be self-employed skilled gardeners with excellent plant knowledge and demonstrable experience on horticulturally diverse private estates.
Although much of the maintenance of lawns, hedging and box pruning is taken care of by the existing gardener, the successful candidate will need to be physically fit with a thorough knowledge of horticulture. An academic qualification at or above RHS Level 3 is desired, though not necessarily essential if a strong horticultural work history can be demonstrated.
Applicants should hold, or be able to obtain, a clear DBS check and full references from previous employers/clients.
RATE: £15/hr to £20/hr dependent on experience
