Senior Gardener Featured
An opportunity has arisen for a hard working ambitious gardener to work in the gardens of a historic property in West Cork, Ireland. The property is situated in a secluded location benefitting from the gulf stream and is located minutes away from award winning Clonakilty town and Inchydoney beach. The property consists of 33 acres of natural landscape, formal and informal planting. Thanks to the mild coastal climate, a very large variety of plants are being grown including some unusual and rare specimens. Its most important feature is a recently restored 2 acre walled garden with its dry stone terracing, glasshouses, cold frames, polytunnel, potting sheds and ponds. The layout of the walled garden includes a flower/vegetable/fruit production garden, Italian garden, rose garden, exotic borders and informal wildlife pond. Other features of the property include lawns, mixed borders, several ponds, a saltwater lagoon, woodlands, courtyard garden and wild flower meadows....
