Founded in 1974, the Johnstown Garden Centre is a real destination in the area, a meeting place and a relaxing environment in which to spend some time with family, friends or just some quiet time to relax. The Centre has been the recipient of many prestigious awards and recognition during the years including “Garden Centre of the Year”, and a 5 star quality award from Horticulture Ireland, the government agency responsible for Irish Horticulture.
John and Elsie Clarke founded the Centre in August 1974, on a greenfield site in the quaint Norman village of Johnstown, Naas, Co. Kildare in Ireland. The company expanded rapidly and in 1980, sons Jim and Sean joined the firm and today manage the site jointly, together with 4 of the next generation of the family, Paul, Barry, Emma and Holly and a large dedicated staff. John and Elsie are still taking it a bit easier now both enjoying very good health, as they now celebrate over 45 years in business.
The entire Garden Centre is fully wheelchair accessible, with special parking bays and toilet facilities. Their aim has always been to be truly a Gardeners’ Garden Centre and now in addition, can also offer an extensive range of other lines like Outdoor Clothing, Gourmet Foods, Kitchen and Household, and unusual gift items. The website has one of the largest plant ranges available anywhere, all from the very top quality growers in Europe. Visa or Mastercard cards are accepted in store or online and you can also pay online with Paypal if you wish. Nationwide delivery is available in Ireland for just 6.95 for items ordered online.
