A job tending the immense gardens at Buckingham Palace has been advertised on the Royal Household website. The demanding job starts at 7.30 am each morning, and pays an astonishingly low £14,950 a year - which works out at just under £300 a week.

So what do they need to do for the money, and can this pay be right?
