Did any of you spot a little ad in Horticulture Week a couple of weeks ago? ’Single-handed gardener required for important historic garden in Surrey,’ it said. ’At least ten years’ practical experience in similar gardens desirable ... accommodation and good salary available etc.’ Well, just in case any of you are so jaded with the business that you are tempted to chuck in your Palm Pilot and mobile phone for a life of Miracle Gro and potting sheds, be warned that the owner of this historic garden is Chris ’fat wad’ Evans. You’d think with all those Scottish Media Group millions, he could afford a two-handed gardener, wouldn’t you?
