Our client is an established specialist horticulture company which grow premium quality hedging for soft screening and privacy, giving character and warmth to a plot of land with the added bonus of wind and sound reduction.

Mature instant hedges are chosen by many leading landscape architects, designers and keen gardeners as they out-perform timber fences, form dense barriers and provide a natural corridor for small mammals and nesting opportunities for many small birds. These hedges create maximum impact even though they have only just been planted.  Typically, their clients are the general public, landscape architects and large show arenas, e.g. Chelsea, Hampton Court, Beaulieu.

This exciting position has become available and an enthusiastic Horticulture Manager is needed who can bring the following skills:

•            Hands-on knowledge of good husbandry

•            Good understanding of business

•            Ability to market and sell this high-quality product within the British Isles

•            Evidence of having completed a course in horticulture
