Plant Sale 2016

Our hugely popular Plant Sale happens every April and the 2016 date is on Saturday, April 16th. We offer a huge range of perennial plants & shrubs – all propagated from the garden at Lavistown. We aim to offer hardworking, tough and dependable plants that will make your garden look great! We price all our plants from €2.50 upwards making it possible to get a great selection of plants at much lower prices than the garden centres.

Our plant list is available from March – email us for a copy – info@lavistownhouse.ie
