We are looking to recruit a passionate and skilled Head Gardener to join our team at Holker.  Holker Hall is one of the UK’s best-loved stately homes and the gardens are renowned as a plantsperson’s garden with immaculate presentation. The varied gardens have been created by generations of the Cavendish family and consist of 25 acres of formal borders, lawns, meadows, topiary, water features, woodland, plant collections, a nursery and a Kitchen garden. This is an opportunity for a creative individual to lead and develop a team of gardeners, to express ideas and build on the legacy of innovation that is at the heart of the garden.
