Dear Volunteers, Friends, Customers and Supporters

We would like to thank you for your continued support and understanding during our voluntary lockdown. The news on the vaccine rollout is wonderful and the efforts of those involved are to be applauded. Our local infection rates remain high but do appear to be falling and we very much hope we can open our retail areas again in March. This is only a tentative plan as much will depend on Government announcements mid-February and of course, the continued drop in local infection rates and reduction of pressure on the NHS.

Behind the scenes, we are working hard to prepare our nurseries and plants for the busy spring season and they are looking wonderful. The longer days and warmer weather will surely lift all of our spirits as we reconnect with our gardens and nature.

Chestnut Nursery still have their website open for deliveries in the Bournemouth and Poole area. Visit for more details.

In the meantime, stay safe and we will keep you informed of our plans to reopen the nurseries and welcome back our Volunteers, Friends and Customers.
