    Yes, because your previous employment has ended.

    Assuming relations are still good with your current employer, you could always ask if they'd consider it. If you could also demonstrate that you'd handed over all of your responsibilities/knowledge etc to whoever was replacing you, your case would probably be strengthened, but the key thing to remember is that there's no right to get it (or even to ask), so it's all a matter of mutual agreement.

    However, you're only asking for a week - that's 5 working days. If you're not parting on the best of terms, then you might want to think whether it's worth rocking the boat for that short a time.

    Anyway if you no longer work for an employer regardless of still being paid I see no issues with starting a new job.
    Sometimes my advice may not be great, but I'm not perfect and I do try my best. Please take this into account.

    Garden (or gardening) leave is where you're paid your notice period (or longer) but aren't expected to work - in fact, you're being paid not to work, especially for someone else. You're therefore being paid to do the gardening.

    (gardening - geddit?!? it's a cracker!)

    However, you would not expect to get paid for the full month. You'd only expect to get paid for the 3 weeks you actually worked.
