We are fourth generation nurserymen with over a hundred years of growing experience. Charles Bloom was a grower of market garden cut flowers at the beginning of the 20th century. His son Alan Bloom then established the current Blooms Nurseries Ltd supplying open ground perennials to private and trade customers alike soon becoming one of the largest nurseries in the UK. He was responsible for the introduction of nearly two hundred varieties during his lifetime here at Bressingham and was the founder of the 'Island Bed' form of garden display which inspired the world famous Dell Garden here at Bressingham. His sons Robert and Adrian Bloom took over the reins of the business in the mid 1970's and introduced containerisation of plants to sell to Garden Centres as well as mail order customers. Adrian also designed his Foggy Bottom garden which has also acheived world renown. We regularlry participated at Chelsea Flower Show and won 23 gold medals for our displays over many years. The tradition continues today with Adrian's son Jason now running the company and continuing to supply a wide range of quality perennials, grasses and ferns to some of the top plant orientated Garden Centres throughout the country as well as mail order supply to the general public.
Both the Dell Garden and Foggy Bottom here at Bressingham have been linked together with an extra Winter Garden, Summer Garden, Adrian's Wood and Fragrant Garden so that visitors can enjoy 17 acres of world class gardens.
