The current plant range is comprised largely of unusual and rare plants from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Brazil, China, India, Mexico and Chile.

Current Plant Availability List

All of the plants that that we have for sale are growing in the gardens and therefore we have first hand experience of all the plants available for sale.

Trading in many of these plants is protected by the international CITES Convention which promotes sustainable use of natural resources.

I have imported and sold plant exotica for the last 20 years and I continue to develop lines in unusual plants. I have a large stock of tree and ground ferns offering a huge choice of plants to both the professional and amateur gardener.

Please note: ALL photographs on display in Plants for Sale have been taken in either my nursery or my garden unless prefixed by a * in the case of photographs taken elsewhere on my travels.

Tree Ferns

Palms

Palms are relatively new to be used in gardens in Ireland. They bring a special feel to any garden. In basic terms they come in 2 distinct types, the fan palm and the feather palm. Nearly all of the palms that are commercially on offer for outdoor use come from Central and South America and South East Asia.
