Outdoor plant highlights, Monkstown, March 7th 2022

Coming out of winter and into spring, our customers start to move away from woody plants, wanting much needed 'colour' in the garden. Although it's actually a great time to plant trees and shrubs, it's natural to start focussing on flowers to brighten these dreary days; hellebores, camellias, pulmonarias, spring bulbs such as snowdrops, anemone and fritillaria, alpines such as Aubretia, Arabis and Saxifraga are already coming into bloom. While the soil is starting to warm up a little, rainfall is still in abundance and there is a glimmer of heat in the sun, it is a good time to plant trees and shrubs.

Here is just a selection of some of the trees, shrubs and climbers that we have in Monkstown at the moment. Please note, these plants may not be here when you visit.
