A Day with Arley's Head Gardener Gordon Baillie


A rare opportunity to spend an exclusive day behind the scenes at one of the UKs most prestigeous and historic gardens with Arley’s Head Gardener and his team.
Working with Gordon on a one-to-one basis, join in with a variety of seasonal tasks, such as propagating, pruning, dead heading, staking and cultivating. 
Gordon is a graduate in horticulture from Strathclyde University and has worked on several estates over the last 20 years from Lord Shawcross’s Estate near Eastbourne, Lord Sackville at Knole Park and Sting’s secluded estate ‘somewhere’ in Wiltshire!
This is a rare opportunity to work on the historic herbaceous border at Arley and to experiment with the many unusual varieties of vegetables and bedding plants
grown for the gardens at Arley.
