The Kells Bay Gardens Plant Centre is an enthusiast-owned nursery that specialises in the import of Tree Ferns and other rare and unusual exotics from around the world.

The current plant range is comprised largely of unusual and rare plants from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Brazil, China, India, Mexico and Chile.

All of the plants that that we have for sale are growing in the gardens and therefore we have first hand experience of all the plants we have for sale.

Trading in many of these plants is protected by the international CITES Convention which promotes sustainable use of natural resources.

I have imported and sold plant exotica for the last 20 years and I continue to develop lines in unusual plants. I have a large stock of tree and ground ferns offering a huge choice of plants to both the professional and amateur gardener.


Our new plant list will be available in early June.

After you order we will email you the fulfilled order and price including delivery charge.

2023 Plant Sales – We have just completed our new plant sales area in the Gardens where you can see all of our plants. Where possible kindly email us if coming to purchase plants.

We can organise delivery of larger orders by trolley using a dedicated horticultural transport company. This will cost in the region of €100 nationwide.  

Apologies, but we don’t presently do mail order.

I visit France usually twice a year, normally late March and September. Area covered is Normandy and Brittany. Please pre book your order.

Orders to Europe and the United States:
We regret that we cannot send plants to Europe and the US. The transport and paperwork costs are too prohibitive.
