The fourteen month placement arranged by the Heritage Horticulture Skills Scheme (HHSS) aims to increase the number of highly skilled gardeners available to the heritage horticultural sector.
"The idea is an excellent one and is ideal for someone looking to further their horticultural studies and experiences.
"Long-term, the project will also help us build the skills base here in Wales and we will end up with a bigger pool of highly-skilled gardeners who can help the heritage horticultural sector in Wales. Of course it also offers a chance in a lifetime for a young gardener to live and work here in the glorious surroundings of Aberglasney."
The successful candidate will receive a £10,000 bursary.
Last year Alexander Hoyle was studying at Pershore College, and Rhys Griffiths beat off strong competition to become the first to secure HHSS places at Aberglasney.
Entry forms can be found at www.hhss.co.uk and should be returned to:
Lantra SSC, Dept HHSS, Royal Welsh Showground, Llanelwedd, Builth Wells, Powys, LD2 3WY.
While these are to be returned by July 16 late applications will still be considered. Interviews will be during the week of the 13-15th August. Successful candidates will begin their traineeship in September.
The money for the traineeships has been accessed through the Heritage Lottery Fund under the Skills for the Future programme to provide traineeships in practical, specialised, heritage horticultural period techniques. HSS is run by a group of associated garden sites: Aberglasney, Bodnant, Cardiff City Council, Dyffryn Gardens, National Botanic Garden of Wales, Newport City Council and St Fagans: National History Museum. The application and placement process for the trainees is administered by Lantra.
