Description
Some help needed next Spring please for general garden work, digging, seeding and planting.

I'd like someone who has some experience of gardening please and is happy to do both physical work and more detailed work.
Who can also work alone and enjoys the great outdoors.

I love my garden, created over the past 18 years from the corner of a field.
The garden has vegetable and fruit beds, a polytunnel, a flower bed, a separate herb garden, a wildlife pond, damson trees and an uncooperative apple tree. A hedge of indigenous species forms the southern field boundary.
I have a couple of chairs and a hammock to sit and enjoy the garden, surrounding woods and fields on a sunny day.

The village, set in open countryside, is one long row of houses on a hillside, left when the colliery and housing were demolished in the 1960's.
We have a neighbourhood nature reserve and a Durham Wildlife Reserve towards the head of the valley. We're a few miles from Weardale, Durham City and 15 miles from Newcastle/Gateshead.
