Other things I could do with my life, #537.

Seen in the Summer/Autumn issue of Scottish Gardner:

The owners of a restored walled garden on the island of Mull are looking for a keen gardener who would be willing to take over the plot on a long lease.

The garden, which dates from 1780, was until recently operated as a nursery for rare plants but has now become vacant.

Owner Jonathan Quinn says: 'We hope that whoever takes it on will also be willing to design and create a new garden around the main house. The site covers four acres and we are quite open-minded as to the style of the garden.'

It was in this house that writer Elizabeth Luard penned some of her books and it is believed that Beatrix Potter was a visitor there as there are illustrations of views in Peter Rabbit that are identical to those in the garden.

Anyone interested in taking over the walled garden should contact xxx.





  1. Tempting as all of that sounds, I'd rather have you back home in Salt Lake, okay?

  2. I've loved reading all about your Scotland trip today! I say definitely apply for the one week cottage stay. That would be amazing.
