Hello! I am Leonie Meehan
Bsc Hort, MCIHort
Irish Fuchsia Nursery commenced trading in 2018. Until now plants were sold to the Irish market through direct sales, local country markets, national garden and plant shows. My goal is to produce top quality, disease free, robust plants suited to the Irish climate in a range of sizes at competitive prices.
I offer a personal, friendly and consumer-based service and look forward to meeting my customers on-line until current restrictions are lifted.

Since its inception Irish Fuchsia Nursery has been a member of the Irish Specialist Nursery Association. Specialisation encourages the exploration of the wide diversity of each plant type available, the production of as many of these types as is viable, offering both quality and choice.
This association was established to represent the smaller more specialist Nurseries in Ireland and will introduce the business to a specialist and connoisseur market
