A wonderful opportunity has arisen for the right candidate to join our expanding team of gardeners at our 10acre private estate on the outskirts of Warminster in Wiltshire.
The stunning Georgian style property includes gardens comprising expansive lawns, yew and beech hedging, topiary, a French style parterre, a semi-circular walled garden, a white garden, mixed and herbaceous borders, woodland, bulb meadows and water features.
