Blaise Secret Garden

The blaise community garden also know as the secret garden is located within the grounds of blaise, behind the main house.

For more information please click read more below to visit the community garden website.


The garden is open to the public throughout the year on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10am to 2pm. It also opens on mondays in the summer months, so come along and visit.


Originally vegetables and fruit were grown in the garden for the Blaise Estate in the 1800’s. In the 1950’s Bristol City Council used the space to grow Bristol’s bedding plants. Cannington College then used the space to teach students about horticulture, with the garden eventually taken over for a tree growing project.


In June 2013 the Friends of Blaise and Henbury Conservation Society were granted access behind the walls, to restore a part of the garden and create Henbury’s first community kitchen garden.
