Sole Maintenance Gardener required

An attractive opportunity has arisen for an experienced and qualified Gardener in Hertfordshire.  This role is expected to require four full days per week and will be paid on a pro-rata basis as per the salary range below and in line with experience.

The successful family-run garden centre and nursery has been trading for several decades and has an excellent reputation within the industry.  The main two-acre ornamental garden will be the focus of the position, with maintenance of the grounds within the 10-acre property being equally important in terms of overall presentation.  Due to the nature of the business, the standard to which the site must be maintained is of the upmost importance and as such, applicants must have exceptional attention to detail and an efficient working manner.

Applicants will ideally hold a recognised academic horticultural qualification, have strong plant knowledge, practical horticultural skills and experience of operating a range of garden machinery.  Typical daily duties will include mowing and strimming, shrub pruning and labelling, management of small trees and herbaceous borders, planting, rotavating, weed control and hedge cutting.  You will also be responsible for sowing and maintaining a wildflower area as well as planting and managing bedding plant displays.  Spray tickets (PA1/PA6) are required.

Applicants must have a positive and enthusiastic personality, be genuinely able to work on your own initiative and have excellent attention to detail whilst working in a busy and often challenging environment.
