(7th April 2011) Provenance : The beginning of something’s existence; something’s origin.

A posh definition of where something comes from and particularly important to The Secret Garden as we look to select local nurseries so we support local enterprise and also reduce our carbon footprint.

Within 40 minutes of the garden centre there are 2 perennial nurseries, one bedding nursery and our veg grower, and within another hour at least another five plant nurseries. So not only are we supporting local jobs we know where the plants come from and know they are going to be better suited to the Irish climate.

Please note that The Secret Garden is no longer operating as a garden centre, we are now offering floristry services, wedding flowers, flowers for funerals and other occassions. We also host courses and other events in gardening and floral displays and Sarah is available to do talks for organisations and at events all over Munster.
