Work with us
We currently employ a team of around 45 which is a mix of part time & full time, seasonal and permanent staff even apprentices and as such we have a full range of ages and experiences throughout the company. We have won several industry awards which have been as a result of teamwork creating a great customer experience.
We are lucky enough to have a very low turnover of staff and as such situations vacant don’t often occur, however if there is nothing advertised here we would still love to hear from you. Of course plants are at the very heart of our business and we are always keen to hear from enthusiastic plants people who have experience in gardens and nurseries however that’s not just what we are about....
As professional retailers we are always looking to hear from people who have had experience in the wider retail industry, marketing or customer relations as well as direct garden centre knowledge. We also run our own café on site, have a busy pet shop and have a website that sends goods across Europe.
