Qualified and Experienced Gardener (previously worked with National Trust for Scotland at Falkland Palace, studied Horticulture at Elmwood College in Fife, Scotland)

Living in Puglia permanently with Laura my wife, we also own/property manage our own property, a holiday rental villa in Laureto by Selva di Fasano.

I  undertake all aspects of gardening/land management from small to larger jobs such as strimming, pruning, weed control and of course watering of plants if you are absent for a while.

I also have a number of clients who use me on a month by month basis yearly to ensure their land is looking well kept,tidy and under control so when they arrive they can get straight on with enjoying their holiday.

Anyone is welcome to visit us to see our own land (surrounding Trullo Falco) and see for yourself how I look after it and how I prune my own Olive, Cherry, Almond and Fig trees trees professionally, after 11 years of experience.

I also own a number of grape vines both for eating and wine production and understand the importance of how and when to prune them.

Lemon and Orange trees are a particular interest of mine and again I can rejuvenate older trees or simply look after existing healthy trees for you if you are absent.

No job is too small and I would welcome any interested parties to email me at jgourlay7@aol.com to discuss any jobs or specific needs they may have. Or you can also contact me on 0044  7427 706677 (UK phone but we reside in Puglia) or PM me. Competitive rates.

Remember Spring has already begun here in Puglia with strong weed growth is already well underway so now is the time to start the strimming and weed control before it gets quickly out of hand. Pruning of grape vines is also upon us and again its important to act quickly prior to the sap rising in the stems to ensure a strong crop of flowers/grapes.

Once your land is back under control and looking ready for the year ahead I can advise on how to maintain it so it remains in a tidy state for the remainder of the summer season.

 Best regards

Jon Gourlay
