If you love gardens as much as we do then you’ll know they need a lot of care and attention. Our volunteer gardeners do practical work to help keep the grounds at the Castle in peak condition and looking eye catching.
Often you are one of the first people visitors encounter so being a friendly face for visitors and answering any questions is just as important as your knowledge of plants.
