Easter Chicks Hatching!
Easter hen chicks will again be hatching throughout Easter Weekend!
This entirely free event is always popular with all age groups. Stand and watch a chick peck its way out of an egg in a glass topped incubator. Then see that chick recover, fluff up to a lovely yellow and start to feed under a heat lamp.
We run this popular free event throughout every Easter Weekend so from around midday on Good Friday to the end of Easter Monday there should be something to see!
Remember that unlike large garden centres and because we grow a high percentage of our own plants, we will be open 10-5 pm on Easter Sunday. We’re open10-5 on Friday and Monday too.
Not been to us before? Take a tour.
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.
Garden Re-Leaf Day
Garden Re-Leaf day this year was March 17th [St Patrick’s Day] and we had a very special event this year!
Alan Down’s private collection and stock plant collection of Hellebores was on view to a limited few!
Ticket sales and a tombola raised a magnificent £433!
All proceeds have gone to Greenfingers Charity to build more gardens in Children’s Hospice throughout Britain.

We’ve changed the planting a bit to reflect seasonal plants that will encourage bees, bumblebees and other pollinating insects and the planted pickup truck is looking great!

Garden Re-Leaf Day Special Garden Open
Garden Re-Leaf day this year is March 17th [St Patrick’s Day] and we have a very special event this year!
Alan Down’s private collection and stock plant collection of Hellebores will be on view to a limited few!
So on Friday March 17th between 10 am and 4 pm here at Cleeve Nursery, we will have the collection in Alan and Felicity’s garden on view.
Numbers will be limited to just 12 persons every 15 minutes throughout the day.
Tickets cost £4 and all proceeds will go to Greenfingers Charity to build more gardens in Children’s Hospice throughout Britain.
Sadly, due to steps, narrow and sometimes slippery paths and lack of space the garden does not lend itself to disabled access.
