Chelsea Fringe Houseplant Clinic!
We’re holding a free Chelsea Fringe 2017 Houseplant Clinic here on Saturday June 3rd between 12 and 2pm!
Do you struggle to keep your houseplants healthy and looking good? Are they suffering from ailments such as wilting, crispy tips or yellow leaves? Veronica Peerless is the author of How Not to Kill Your Houseplant and she will be at Cleeve Nursery to help.
Having killed quite a few houseplants in her time she’s learned the error of her ways, and can offer simple advice that anyone can follow.
Bring your ailing houseplant along to the Houseplant Hospital at Cleeve Nursery and Veronica will try to diagnose what’s wrong with your plant and offer advice on nursing it back to health.
The first 20 visitors will receive a copy of How Not To Kill Your Houseplant (worth £9.99) and a free houseplant to take home.
So see you here on Saturday June 3rd between 12 and 2pm!
Watch this Space!
We’re working with BBC and others to come up with a lasting commemorative garden project.
2017 marks the anniversaries of several key programmes and departments for the BBC and several of these are Bristol based.
BBC Gardeners World celebrates 50 years since the very first broadcast – was that with Percy Thrower?
BBC Points West celebrates 60 years of local news in 2017.
The plan is to create a project marking the anniversaries of both programmes in Bristol and to leave a legacy that benefits one of Bristol’s communities.
National Children’s Gardening Week
Take part in National Children’s Gardening Week between May 29th and June 4th!
Encourage your children to get into the healthy and stress free habit of gardening and teach them the importance of nature and of where our food comes from!
Chat to us for ideas of how to get started and perhaps get a few ideas from the Facebook site for this event.
This Junior Gardening page of ours might inspire you too.
Not been to us before? Take a tour.
Chelsea Fringe in Bristol 2015
We’ve changed the original planting since 2015 to reflect seasonal plants that will encourage bees, bumblebees and other pollinating insects and the planted pickup truck is looking great!

Father’s Day Sunday June 18th 2017
Celebrate Father’s Day on Sunday June 18th!
Father’s Day is a much lower key event in Britain than Mother’s Day but dads like to have a fuss made over them too!
How about getting dad a new shiny spade? Or perhaps another garden tool but make it that bit special by buying stainless steel ones! These are much easier to use and certainly easier to keep clean.
We stock most of the Kent and Stowe range and there’s more detail about them here.
