We live on an established property with a big garden, tennis court and a small commercial walnut orchard half an hour's drive north west of Christchurch. We have a sleepout with a queen sized bed and a spare room also with a queen sized bed in the house. Our house is warm and comfortable. We have tools for fitting out your car/van.

We are looking for a couple to help us both at home and with my gardening business starting in the last week of July.

I am a gardener and I am having an operation on my shoulder on the 3rd of August. The work requires going to one or two clients' gardens each day and doing the work required. The work involves maintaining their gardens which may involve mowing lawns, trimming hedges, pruning, weeding, planting or removing plants. I will be happy to supervise and give instruction if needed. My work vehicle, trailer and all tools are provided.

Our property is 20 minutes from the centre of Christchurch. We are a busy working family and run a rose business from our property. Our helpers stay in a warm and private cottage with one double bed, own bathroom and kitchen.

Food for breakfast/lunch is provided which you make in your own cottage, and dinner is shared with the family. We always appreciate a traditional meal (or anything else!) if you like to cook/bake.

Help needed is varied depending on the time of year. You will either be helping us in our rose nursery or general help around the property/house, just wherever we need an extra pair of hands! Our helpers typically help for about 4.5 hours a day, with one day off.
