About Howbert & Mays Gardens

Howbert & Mays was established by Anthea Howbert & Tig Mays in 2002. Trained horticulturists, they worked as hands-on gardeners, garden designers and consultants before opening their Monkstown shop in 2012. Two further shops were opened in 2017, one in Airfield Estate, Dundrum, Dublin 14, and the other beside Avoca's largest shop in Clonee, Co Meath, in the former Plantagen garden centre.

Howbert & Mays seeks out quality where it can. Plants are chosen that will will thrive in the Irish climate, and come from Irish growers wherever possible. Tools are selected to be functional, long lasting and reliable, frequently made by long-established manufacturers. Fertilisers and growing aids are organic, nature-based, and no chemical weedkillers, fungicides ar fertilisers are stocked. 

Most of our staff are qualified horticulturists who can advise you on what plants to choose, or even come up with garden design ideas for you. So please drop in - there's plenty in the shops that never makes it onto this website!
