Garden enthusiasts and plant lovers are gearing up for an exciting event as the Irish Specialist Nursery Association (ISNA) announces a plant fair at Teagasc Kildalton College, Piltown, Co. Kilkenny, on Sunday, May 19 from 11am to 4pm.

Hosted among the lush green setting of Kildalton Agriculture and Horticulture College, this event promises to be a haven for anyone looking for unusual and interesting plants to add to their own garden.

Irish Specialist Nursery Association plant fairs are widely known for their array of specialty plants, unusual botanical gems, and expert advice from leading horticulturists and nursery owners. From exotic blooms to indigenous species, the fair will showcase an impressive selection to cater to every gardening palette.

“The ISNA Plant Fair at Kildalton College is a celebration of Ireland’s rich horticultural heritage and the passion of our dedicated nursery professionals,” remarked Tim Ashmore, Principal, Kildalton College.
