Our cafe


Why not enjoy a drink and a snack when you visit Mayfield?

We offer tea, coffee, herbal teas, hot chocolate and a range of cold drinks. Our cafe also stocks various snacks from cakes and crisps to sandwiches. Seating is located outside in our covered area on more sunny days or on cooler days in our log cabin. It really is a little oasis in Southampton.


We stock a wide range of excellent quality bedding and basket plants for both spring and autumn, at very competitive prices.

We also have stock a comprehensive range of perennials and shrubs suited to any aspect and varying soil conditions.

We offer professional advice on our plants and if we do not stock a particular variety you are after, we will endeavour to source it for you. We are also an excellent resource for garden designers and landscapers, offering a discount to the wholesale trade.

We offer a hanging basket service where we can restore your existing baskets or create a completed hanging basket for you with flowers of your choice.
