Well there are lots of amazing gardeners out there looking for work. Thanks to everyone who called and mailed. I hope I responded to everyone..... Some people who applied would find me far too chaotic, and others I really couldn't consider employing because they should be running fabulous design or development or restoration projects rather than considering working in the cut flower gardens.
Diane will be starting soon. I've a feeling we'll get on well and that she's just what the gardens need at this point. RHS qualified, many years of jobbing garden and nursery experience and fabulously long pink nails. We need a bit of gardening glamour!
