I am currently working on developing a series of Online Training Sessions, Workshops and Foraging Events.

In the meantime I am delighted to announce that I am joining forces with Vivienne Campbell from The Herbal Hub as one of her guests on her new series of Online Classes. We are planning a number of classes covering all aspects of Growing Culinary and Medicinal Herbs.

Our first two sessions on Growing Edible and Medicinal Herbs booked out fast. New dates will be announced soon.


The Herb Garden is a Certified Organic Herb Nursery, established by Denise Dunne in 1995. We produce a wide range of Certified Organic Herb Seed and stock a small selection of Certified Organic Herb Plants that are not widely available. We also supply a range of Certified Organic Salad, Flower and Native Irish Wildflower seed.

Due to Covid 19 The Herb Garden Nursery will remain closed until further notice.


We specialise in Herb Garden Design for the private and corporate sector – restaurant and hotel kitchen gardens; heritage garden restorations; walled and medieval gardens; medicinal, aromatherapy and sensory gardens.


We offer a Consultancy Service, giving advice on herb garden design, organic growing, organic conversion plans and specialist menu planning, incorporating local and seasonal products, herbs and wild foods.


Denise is available for talks, demonstrations and workshops on all aspects of growing and using herbs. For more information please visit our Talks|Workshops|Foraging Walks page.

Unfortunately all real life workshops, talks and foraging walks are postponed until further notice. I am working on plans for virtual alternatives. Online talks, workshops and foraging walks can be tailored to meet your needs. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any further enquiries.


While I had wonderful plans for foraging events, workshops, and wild and local dinners for the 2020 spring season, everything has of course been put on hold.

The nursery will remain closed indefinitely and I won't have any plants for sale until further notice. I have a selection of seed collections available in the online seed shop.

I'm also planning to record some wild food foraging videos, and share some recipe ideas for the food I am cooking at home, using store cupboard ingredients, local produce and seasonal wild foods.

In the meantime, you can find plenty of information on growing and using herbs by clicking on the drop down menus above.

I am still available for virtual/online talks, foraging walks, design and consultancy work, and please don't hesitate to contact me with any further enquiries.

Thank you everyone for your support.

Stay safe and take care of yourselves and each other.
