Blagdon Water Gardens Website:

Surprisingly the website was down at the time I wrote the hub. It must be down for maintenance. So, at this time, you can’t order their products online. To buy something, you will have to visit the water garden centre, which of course is a great option for a day out plan.

The site where Blagdon Water Gardens is located was the site of a large kitchen garden in the 1970s. In 1984 Michael Chivers, a small retailer of water garden products, bought the place and established the water garden centre there. In 1999, the garden centre was bought by the Smith Brothers who had great success in Nursery business and wanted to get a hold in the retail business. And since then they are running this classic Blagdon water gardens centre smoothly.
