Our plant nursery

Ivywood Botanicals is a medicinal plant nursery based in East Claare which specialises in medicinal plants from around the world. It is owned and ran by Herbalists Ross Hennessy and Marina Kesso.

They nursery was established eight years ago to provide other herbalists around the country with plants and to inspire them to reconnect with growing your own plant medicines. The Nursery is a source garden for anyone looking for heirloom varieties of medicinal plants which are grown for their high phytochemical content. Medicinal plants have been with us since the beginning of time and by encouraging people to repopulate their gardens or public grounds with these plants, will keep the knowledge of herbal medicine alive in communities. 

Workshops and courses are ran on the farm to teach people how to grow and safely use herbal medicines. The nursery hosts 140 different herbs and over 200 growing on the farm which Ross and Marina process on site. We process our herbs into dried stock for teas, tinctures, glycerites, vinegars, oils, creams, ointments for use in their herbal medicine clinical practice.
