Description
1820s family home on the outskirts of Belfast, with 5 acres. The grounds include a walled garden (fruit, vegetables & flowers), greenhouse, paddock, orchard and small woodland areas.

This is a garden restoration project and, although most of the heavy work (cutting back & moving branches of overgrown shrubs) has now been completed, I still need help throughout the year.

Some of the jobs to be done will include: preparing vegetable beds, sowing seeds, planting out seedlings, potting plants for spring sale, cutting grass edges, clearing ivy from walls & trees, some splitting & moving of plants, raking leaves, pruning roses & fruit trees, making apple juice, spreading woodchip/compost, picking fruit & preparing for freezing or jam-making, picking vegetables, splitting logs, gathering kindling wood, and LOTS of meticulous weeding all year round!
