ABOUT OUR NURSERY

Mount Venus Nursery is a specialist nursery tucked away in the scenic Dublin hills overlooking the city. Over the past 20 years we have been growing one of the widest collections of hardy garden plants in Ireland. Most of our plants are home grown and exposed to the elements. Having such a palette of plants available at your doorstep is essential when designing successful and bio-diverse gardens. Our sales area, the old Walled Garden, is well structured from sun to deep shade which makes it enjoyable for you to stroll through finding the right plants for the right spots in your garden. Enjoy your visit to the Nursery.

COVID-19 update: Under the restrictions of March 28th, the nursery is currently closed.

Orders can be placed via the website, email, or phone, and we will get back to you with full availability and pricing.

Full delivery Service available.

Thank you for your support. We hope to see you again soon.

LOOKING GOOD

Magnolias

If cherries are the spring chorus, magnolias are the stars.

Stately, handsome trees, often as wide as tall, they have a classical charm making any garden feel established. Flowers large or small, in colours from white to nearly black. We have a variety of Magnolias available from large specimen trees to trees at home in small gardens, and even compact shrubby varieties fit anywhere.

In light of the COVID-19 situation, plants can be ordered and delivered. We are happy to discuss availability via email over the phone.


It’s an unfortunate time for the Walled Garden to be closed just as we finally get some warmth to wake the plants up. We are still accepting orders with full delivery service available so you can still buy plants while protecting everybody’s health and to help you browse virtually we’re posting some photos and information on what’s looking great in the nursery right now.

PLANT ADVICE

March 29, 2020

A plant hunters dream in your Garden. Unusual plants.

A plant hunters dream in your Garden. Unusual plants. Trudging through the temperate forests of the far East or North America in Victorian garb with an impractical assortment of wooden sample cases may seem far removed from a trip to the modern garden centre. But it was on these very expeditions that the Europeans of the late 1800s brought back so many of the plants we now grow in our gardens…..

JAPANESE MAPLES

Japanese maples count as the most valuable and garden-worthy trees and gardeners have being cultivating them for over 300 years. Japanese Maples are attractive in every season. The fresh new foliage in spring remind of endless little hands opening up and followed by the beautiful yellow-red, lime-green pendant flowers that later turn into wings. Through summer we enjoy the healthy canopy of leaves and the handsome growth habit. In autumn there are very few other plants that can beat the intensity of colors, from yellows, through oranges and scarlets.

Today we enjoy a vast variety of cultivars to choose from, selected for their exquisite growth habit, attractive foliage, brilliant autumnal colors and ornamental bark. The trees should be planted in well drained but water retentive soil, ideally raised on a mound, in sun or dappled shade. They will thrive and need little attention or pruning once you have the right variety to suit your garden, and only lightly prune in mid summer (July – August).

Our nursery is now well stocked with a broad selection of good varieties in various sizes.
