Free gardening Holiday

Free gardening Holidays ?  There must  be a catch. Well read on to find out.

 

We really do have something to offer for gardeners, and gardening/horticultural students – free gardening holidays in Brittany

We have three gites and four gardens, and we think them nicer than average, so our ambitions exceed the time allowed us.

So very simply: come and help us in exchange for free accommodation !

Our unfulfilled ambitions include the folowing

replace paving in the Hibiscus garden with marble chippings.
Improve and replace fencing.
installation of small garden pond.
fruit cage for protecting brassicas from insect pests.
Some small irrigation works in our potager.
Planting of low bushes or trees to form a second storey in our woodland garden
Skilled reshaping of our enormous cherry trees to bring fruiting to where we can get at the cherries.
Replace a polytunnel in a new location.
renovate a woodland garden…

….and so on.

We provide materials, tools and guidance.

A free gardening holiday ! Accommodation is free and you will only need to work half days or alternate days. Minimum period of stay for one of our gardening holidays is one week. Some gardening knowledge is required as well as a liking for naturalistic gardens (the English style)…

..and by the way there only has to be one gardener in the party. Other family members or friends have a free ride and are allowed/encouraged to have as much fun as possible.
