John, Margaret's husband and one of Ireland's top growers, has a nursery adjacent to the garden centre here in Dripsey. Here, 80% of the plants we sell are grown with great love and care. This gives you, our customers, the confidence that you are buying plants that are grown locally and therefore, suited to our local climate and environment.
These modern nurseries has mobile benches, computerised controlled environment for the plants and potting machine, growing room and all the hi-tech tools needs to grow top quality plants with such consistency. John is the brains behind this operation and has the skill, knowledge and attention to detail to keep these plants a head above the competition!
Colour plants, patio plants, rockery plants and alpine plants are John's specialities. It could be said that our absolutely giant pansies are world famous at this stage! It is encouraging for our customers to know that behind our vast selection of displays in the garden centre we have a fully operational, highly successful four acre nursery growing these colour plants and shrubs throughout the year!
