What is it?

Mayfield Nurseries logo

Mayfield Nurseries is a working plant nursery, selling a range of award-winning plants at affordable prices. Every penny made is ploughed back into horticultural therapies to support people experiencing mental health issues at our nursery.

As a member of the public, you can visit Mayfield to discover and purchase bedding plants, roses and perennials to fruit bushes, vegetable plants and garden essentials; all lovingly cared for by people with mental health issues. We also have a café and outdoor seating area, which is perfect for taking in our beautiful surroundings or a breather with the dog before enjoying a walk along the River Itchen. 

Our horticultural therapies provide a place for people with mental health issues and learning disabilities to develop new skills and be part of a supportive, friendly community. Planting, pruning and spending time in nature makes dramatic improvements to people's emotional health, confidence and self esteem, whilst group work helps people overcome isolation, anxiety and loneliness. A full list of groups and services can be found on Mayfield's website. 

Who is it for?

You must be registered with a GP surgery in Southampton, but you can refer yourself to any of our services.

Mayfield welcomes anyone experiencing mild to moderate mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD or phobias.

We also support those living with any kind of dementia diagnosis. If you require specialist 1:1 support to comfortably enjoy Mayfield's services, you are welcome to bring a carer or loved one.
