In the Summer of 2017 I took over the maintenance and care of a sizeable stock of Fuchsia Cultivars. These stock plants form the basis of what will grow into the Irish Hardy/Half Hardy Fuchsia Collection. I intend to propagate and sell these fuchsias to the Irish market through direct sales, local country markets, national garden and plant shows.

Irish Fuchsia Nursery will commence trading in Spring 2018.

My goal is to produce top quality, disease free, robust plants suited to the Irish climate in a range of sizes at competitive prices. I offer a personal, friendly and customer based service and look forward to meeting clients at my plant stall at the many shows around the country, as well as welcoming them through the nursery door.

Irish Fuchsia Nursery is owned and managed by Leonie Meehan, BSc Hort, MCIHort
