£23,397 pa

Permanent f/t (37.5 hrs pw)


If you want a career in Gardening, we can offer you some of the most beautiful outdoor spaces in the UK to work in as well as one of the largest plant collections in Europe. Peckover House is a secret gem, an oasis hidden away in an urban environment. A classic Georgian merchant’s town house, it was lived in by the Peckover family for 150 years. The Peckovers were Quakers, which meant they had a very simple lifestyle – yet at the same time they ran a successful private bank. Both facets of their life can be seen as visitors wander through the house and gardens.
