Welcome to Chestnut Nursery

Caring for People, Caring for Plants


Chestnut Nursery is a registered charity and a project of SWOP (Sheltered Work Opportunities Project
Charity No. 900325) which provides meaningful work in a supportive and pressure-free environment,
for adults with enduring mental illness. 

SWOP aims to use the therapeutic nature of horticulture to restore mental well-being.




         New Shop Build!

Please note: the Kingland Road site is closed until March

We are very excited to have begun the works for the shop and nursery improvements and the normal nursery site is now closed until March.

We have a lovely temporary shop in Kingland Crescent, just outside the Dolphin shopping Centre, next to Millets. The shop mainly sells indoor plants and gifts, honey, jams & chutneys, with a few choice outdoor plants. 

Our volunteers will be working in the shop, in Poole Park and over at our sister nursery Cherry Tree. If there are any outdoor plants that you require, please telephone us and we can bring them over to Poole for you from Cherry Tree (subject to availability)


Opening Hours Kingland Crescent:

Monday- Friday 9.00 a.m – 3.30 p.m 

Saturday- 9.00 am- 3.30 pm 

Sunday- closed
