Orchid Paradise Reopened for the Summer Season! We are pleased to tell you that our Orchid Paradise display house has reopened for the Summer Season after a winter maintenance break. It is free entry until the 1st May whilst the flowers currently on show are still opening up. After that there will be a small entry fee of £2.50 per person, but if you buy the current BBC Gardeners' World Magazine with their annual 2 for 1 entry booklet and card, you can get 2 for 1 entry to Orchid Paradise too! The orchids on display are part of the nursery's private collection of orchid species from around the world plus some antique hybrids! Many of these plants are used for propagation of stock for sale so if you see something you like then just ask for latest availability. Our Vanilla orchid is also currently flowering in the hot house roof, the flowers don't last long though! Open daily 10am - 4pm. Spring Dates for Your Diary It is with regret that we have had to cancel The Dublin Orchid Fair this year due to unforeseen circumstances. It was due to be the 27/28 April, we hope to be back next year. Sorry for those aiming to visit, contact us if you need anything sent over. Please also note that the Nursery and Cafe will be CLOSED on Friday 26th April for a family funeral.
