The successful green-fingered candidate for the £14,950-a-year job must also be proficient in 'good organic horticultural practices' when tending the Palace's shrub, herbaceous and rose borders.

Any applicant must also be an early riser, as the 40-hour-a-week job starts at 7.30am and be prepared to work overtime depending on the season.
