Between us we have a wide variety of experience, gained both through the work we do at Beautiful Borders and through previous employment and personal interest. All team members hold a horticultural qualification, mostly RHS. We also regularly undertake further training in many areas of horticulture, from fruit tree pruning to clematis and rose care. We all have a keen interest in vegetable growing!
We are always in search of skilled gardeners, so please get in touch if you would like to know more about joining our team!
