My passion for plants and horticulture started from a young age when I would help my Dad with the family florist and plant business at markets across Ireland and Northern Ireland.
For as long as I can remember, I have been drawn to the unique environment and flora of Australia. In 2016, I lived out my dream and settled new roots in Melbourne, where I have amassed and propagated a broad, interesting and ever-growing collection of plants.
I set up a small nursery business in 2017 and continue to grow and source unique plants from around Australia for sale (and for my own collection of course!).
I believe that plants are calming and have a therapeutic effect that can be a great way to de-stress from the chaos of everyday life.
While I will readily admit that I have never picked up a golf club in my life, my mantra closely aligns with golfer Walter Hagen’s famous quote:
“You’re only here for a short visit. Don’t hurry. Don’t worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.”
I try to incorporate this mantra into my daily life and take time to appreciate the beauty of nature.
