Working at Rowe

We provide our staff with a happy and rewarding place to work.

Most of the seasonal work we offer is manual picking, packing and grading. All involve a considerable amount of bending, walking and lifting.

We work outdoors in all weathers, rain or shine and you must be prepared to work in any weather condition. The job is physically demanding, therefore you must be fit enough to cope with all elements of manual handling (e.g. lifting, bending, walking and carrying crates of daffodils)

We expect everybody to work hard and we offer training and support at the outset to give you the best start possible.

Daffodil harvesting commences from end of December / early January through to end of April (dependent on weather and crop availability).

Applications for winter work are accepted from mid-August to end of October.

All daffodil harvesting is paid at piece rate, meaning the more you produce the more you earn. Payment will be made into your bank account every 2 weeks.

Duties include:

  • Working all day in a field, hand-harvesting daffodils
  • Bending, lifting and carrying trays of daffodils from field to trailer

Work commences from mid June through to end September (or end of harvest, whichever comes first).

Applications for summer work are accepted from mid-April to mid May.

Duties include:

  • Picking bulbs (piece work)
  • Cleaning bulbs (removing stones and soil)
  • Grading bulbs (sorting by size and removing damaged bulbs)
  • Harvesting bulbs 
  • Packing bulbs

Daffodil Picking

Our daffodil picking teams work in groups of around 50-60 people throughout the season which typically runs from late December to April each year.

Many of our pickers return year after year with some having been part of the team for up to 10 years. There are also good opportunities to progress within the business and manage your own teams and we actively encourage promotion from within.
