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.

We’ll post more here as this project gets underway, so be sure to check back to this page periodically.
The BBC Natural History department and Antiques Roadshow also have big anniversaries this year!

Chelsea Fringe in Bristol 2015

Our planted pickup truck for encouraging pollinating insects is looking great here at Cleeve Nursery!

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!
There is a list of bee friendly plants that you can grow here.

Chelsea Fringe in Bristol 2016

Chelsea Fringe, Chelsea, watering can,Cleeve


Last  year it was the planted pickup truck for pollinating insects, the previous year pot grown edible plants in a parking space on Park Street and this year it involves Bristol Airport!
Our giant watering can [probably the biggest in the world] was at Bristol Airport and filled it with tropical indoor plants!
Watch a short video of us setting the can up there.
Chelsea Fringe was from May 21st to June 12th and our can was there until June 14th.
Of course, you can still see the planted pickup truck at Cleeve Nursery now.

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.
