The garden is 3.5 acres and the owners are prepared to invest a lot of time in creating a beautiful garden. The right candidate will need a very strong horticultural knowledge of shrubs, plants, trees, growing fruit, vegetables, and cut flowers. The principals are keen on gardening and are quite knowledgeable themselves so need someone to work with them on ideas and plans for the garden. This is not a short term role.

 

The gardener will be working on their own or with the owners. There is a glasshouse which is being renovated to house fruits trees and to grow vegetables.

 

The estate is near to St Andrews so although it is rural, it is near to a town and only just over an hour to Edinburgh.

 

The gardener must have an approachable manner as they will need to speak with visitors to the garden and therefore be representing the estate.

 

This role will suits someone with a passion for gardening, someone with a vision of what can be created. Also an interest in the cut flowers and fruit and vegetables that can be grown and potentially sold.

 

A DRIVER IS ESSENTIAL

 

 

Accommodation: A property will be available on the estate, the size will depend on if the gardener has a family.
