Online orders are now available for delivery across Ireland. The nursery will be open again in February.

Over the past 20 years we have been growing and selecting a wide range of garden worthy plants to suit every aspect of your garden.

Combine a visit to our nursery in the old Victorian Garden of Tibradden with a scenic drive into the Dublin Mountains.

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.

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.
