Enjoy a Spring outing to ActivLives plant nursery in Chantry Park, Ipswich, on Tuesdays and Thursdays 10am to 2pm.

Our dedicated team of staff and volunteers will be on hand to guide you safely round this community-run heritage site and help you pick something special for your garden or community green space from our wide range of perennials, bedding plants and annuals.

If you can’t visit us when we are open, you can order via our online plant catalogue www.activlives.org.uk/activgardens. Just download an order form and email over with your choices. We will then be in touch to arrange delivery.

In buying from us, you are supporting our charity, which helps local people build stronger, healthier communities and enables people of all ages and abilities to live full and active lives.

We do our bit for the environment too – growing varieties which are bee and butterfly-friendly to attract pollinators to your garden, and using environmentally friendly methods and peat-free compost. Customers can return our pots, trays and labels to us to use again to cut down plastic wastage (we only accept our pots, as other returns can become a waste issue for us).

All our plants are grown at ActivGardens as part of projects to nurture skills and build confidence.
