Arduaine Garden near Kimelford has joined a hunt for the next generation of Scottish gardeners to help preserve and protect it.

The National Trust for Scotland is searching for  apprentice gardeners and has a vacancy at Arduaine offering a full-time, two-year contract.

The placement  for the lucky candidate would start in September. But interested people need to get their skates on as the closing date is tomorrow, Friday July 2.

Arduaine Garden’s Head Gardener Gregor Anderson said: ‘This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who is passionate about gardening to embark on a recognised training programme and gain both qualifications and experience while working at one of Scotland’s most loved gardens.

‘This could be the perfect role for someone who is looking for a new start and a new job or for someone who is still searching for their career path.

‘Our apprenticeship programme will also allow them to gain first-hand, practical experience from National Trust for Scotland gardeners who have decades of experience and are experts in their fields.’

Recruitment for the role closes Friday July 2.
