Mayfield Nurseries

We’re a garden centre in Southampton, based in the old walled kitchen garden at Mayfield Park. Every penny we make from plant sales is invested back into helping people with mental health issues.

Our garden centre & café are open to everyone

We stock a wide range of plants for your home and garden. If you’re looking for something specific, we may be able to order it for you, simply ask one of our friendly team!

We also have a small, independent fresh fruit and vegetable shop on site as well as local crafts and gifts available to buy.

You can also unwind at the Mayfield Nurseries Café after a stroll through Mayfield Park with coffee and cake - and dogs are welcome on leads!

Whatever you get out of your visit to Mayfield Nurseries, every penny you spend goes to support our services that help people with mental health issues live the best possible lives and work towards recovery.
