The title or nickname given to [[Holman]] of [[Hobbiton]], who gardened there long before his descendant [[Sam Gamgee]] took on that role. 'The greenhanded' seems to be meant as a descriptive nickname, so he was most likely the founder of the gardening tradition that was passed on through his family. Both his son [[Halfred Greenhand|Halfred]] and grandson [[Holman Greenhand|Holman]] followed this same tradition, taking the surname Greenhand. [[Holman Greenhand]] passed on his gardening skills to his distant cousin [[Hamfast Gamgee]], and in turn Hamfast's son [[Samwise Gamgee|Sam]] took on the mantle of gardener in Hobbiton.
