Community Run Plant Nursery Reopens to Public

Enjoy a Spring outing to ActivLives plant nursery in Chantry Park, Ipswich, when it opens to the public on Tuesday 30 March at 10am.

ActivLive’s plant nursery has a wide range of perennials, Geranium and other plants on offer – with bedding and a new range of plants coming in soon.

Their dedicated team of staff and volunteers will be on hand to guide you safely around this community-run heritage site and help you pick something special for your garden or community green space.

If you can’t visit when they are open – every Tuesday and Thursday 10am to 2pm – you can order via their online plant catalogue Just download an order form and email over with your choices. They will then be in touch to arrange delivery. 

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

For more information on their projects and activities, and what they are doing to keep people connected during lockdown, please visit their website 

ActivLives do their 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 their pots, trays and labels to them to use again to cut down plastic wastage (they only accept their pots, as other returns can become a waste issue for them).

All their plants are grown at ActivGardens – Chantry Walled Garden, in Chantry Park and the People’s Community Garden, on Maidenhall Allotments – as part of projects to nurture skills and build confidence. 

For more information, or to place an order, please contact Fundraising and Development Manager Susannah Robirosa 07530 407302 (Tuesdays and Thursdays only) or email [email protected].  Or call ActivLives on 01473 345350.
