National Children’s Gardening Week


garden, tools, kids, cleeve nurseryNational Children’s Gardening Week this year was from May 30th – June 2nd.

To celebrate National Children’s Gardening Week, we invited young families to our garden centre to get creative with chalk paints and googely eyes to bring a pot to life!
Kids personalised a terracotta pot (free of charge) in any way they wanted!

This was a free event in celebration of National Children’s Gardening Week!

It was particularly suited to children aged 4-10 years old. There was no need to book – they just turned up here at Cleeve Nursery!

The free pot decorating took place between 10am – 1pm on Wednesday the 30th May and on Saturday 3rd June.

Chelsea Fringe in Bristol 2017


Chelsea Fringe, chelsea, pickup, bees, cleeve, nurseryOur 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 2017 is from May 20th to June 4th and is now an International Festival. Check out our Free Houseplant Clinic for this year’s Fringe elsewhere on this page.

Chelsea Fringe in Bristol 2016


Chelsea Fringe, Chelsea, watering can, CleeveLast  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.
