Overseer of the Gardens or Chief Gardener was an ancient Egyptian occupational title held by high officials in charge of the gardens of a specific palace or temple domain. They supervised the gardeners and inspected the plants and herbs. Several kinds of herbs and plants were used to make perfumes, while other plants produced fruits for consumption. Plants were also used as floral offerings to the gods or deceased relatives.

A notable bearer of the title is Nakhte, a Chief Gardener of Amun at Thebes.
