Blaise Plant Nursery shop

Blaise Plant Nursery is one of the little known parts of Bristol City Council. Nestling at the end of the Blaise Estate screened from view are the glasshouses and polytunnels where two million bedding plants are grown each year.

The original Blaise Plant Nursery used to be a walled garden which was attached to the Blaise Estate. It was where most of the fruit and vegetables for the house were grown from around 1800. This old nursery is now a community garden.

In 1926, Blaise estate was bought by Bristol City Council, and in 1950 they created a plant nursery to grow bedding plants, pot plants and hanging baskets. By the early 1990’s the nursery began to supply plants to a number of local authorities. Since then the business has really developed and it now grows more than 1.5 million plants in it's glasshouses and polytunnels every year.

Blaise Plant Nursery supplies Bristol City Council and other local authorities with winter and summer plants and hanging baskets all year round.
