A fantastic opportunity has become available for a permanent full time Sole Gardener to develop and maintain 6.5 acres of garden and grounds on a family owned estate located in East Hertfordshire. The garden and grounds have not had much development, there is an existing formal border around the house with not much else in the way of formal gardens. Ideally organic principles would be adopted to establish and develop areas of the estate with a walled kitchen garden to grow vegetables and herbs being desired. The owners are looking for someone to design and create different areas in the garden over a 3-5-year timescale. Applicants will need to have practical experience in horticulture, ideally qualifications to RHS level 3 (or equivalent level of vocational experience). A proficient level of plantsmanship/plant husbandry skills are required with knowledge of a range of horticultural techniques covering a varied range of plant types. Previous garden design experience would be an advantage along with strong people skills to build and maintain relationships with the owners. Applicants should be confident and skilled in pruning methods, i.e. of wisteria and roses. To be considered for this role you will need a minimum of 5 years’ experience in a gardening position.
