Gardener for the Day

Experience a unique opportunity to learn from our experts, ask any questions you may have and apply your newly found knowledge at home! Join us for a special one-on-one, full days gardening experience with a member of our award-winning gardening team - the perfect adventure for any horticulture enthusiast!

You need to be prepared to get stuck in and get your hands dirty, please wear weather appropriate clothing. As we are an all weather attraction you may get wet!* Your behind the scenes experience will begin around 8:30am, where you will be kitted out with your very own souvenir gardening T-Shirt and explore the gardens of the Zoo before we're open to the public. Embark on the morning gardening rounds and visit some of our amazing animals as they wake up.

Bristol Zoo Gardens are the proud winners of a vast number of respected horticultural awards such as Bristol in Bloom Commercial Landscape award 2015, Hampton Court Gold Award (Caryopteris Display) 2012, so this is your chance to truly get involved.  Share knowledge and experience with one of our highly trained gardeners, whilst gaining an extra special insight as to how we keep our gardens at a beautifully high standard and gain top-tips for how you can replicate this once back at home.

For only £150 per person our Gardener for the Day experience takes place on Tuesdays and Fridays from 8.30am – 4.00pm.

You will also be provided with a £10 lunch voucher that is redeemable at The Hide Cafe Restaurant.
