Wide range of plants at Cap­pagh Nurs­eries

Bray People - - SPRING GARDENING -

VAN DER Wel ltd (Cap­pagh Nurs­eries), we are a small fam­ily busi­ness work­ing with ded­i­cated fam­ily and staff.

Es­tab­lished since 1967. We started to grow for­est and hedg­ing plants in the town­land of Cap­pagh about 4km to the west of Aughrim vil­lage in 1967.

In 1990 we aquired land at Tin­nakilly, just out­side the vil­lage of Aughrim on the Rath­drum - Dublin road, where we fur­ther de­vel­oped our nurs­ery and sales out­let. We now sup­ply a wide range of plants. This time of year we all are ea­ger to get gar­den­ing, with the days get­ting milder and longer.

No gar­den would be com­plete with­out an area for grow­ing fruit and veg­eta­bles. It can be enor­mous fun to plan and pro­duce a reg­u­lar sup­ply of veg­eta­bles and fruit.

A cared plot also has its own vis­ual ap­peal too. Herbs are an­other easy op­tion. Why not plant na­tive trees and shrubs. Not only are these plants ex­tremely good value to buy (an im­por­tant con­sid­er­a­tion in these harsh eco­nomic times), but there is such a va­ri­ety to be got.

These plants sur­vive the harsh win­ters and they pro­vide a good food source for many of our na­tive birds.

Now is the time to get plant­ing so GET GAR­DEN­ING !! and en­joy.
