Nice photo Gerry, and maybe unusual, too. I can't recall having seen any others of the gardener's at planting time. The background trees appear to have been showing early signs of 'browning', so perhaps the lads were in the process of planting winter-flowering pansies.

Gerry. What date is this photograph. The reason I ask, is, Bill Cooper was a gardener, at Mesnes Park, in the fifties, prior to going to do national service, in about 1955. The lad looking straight at the camera has a look of him. When he came out of the army (Military Police), he joined the Wigan Borough Police. He was a great friend of mine. May he rest in peace.
