Ginkgo Florist is a little shop with a big personality that has brought a new sense of style to Dublin. Ginkgo is a place where flower-lovers can pop in to chat about their garden and see what’s new. We’re named after Ginkgo biloba, an Asian tree with only one living species that has been around since the dinosaurs – that kind of longevity would be nice but we’re taking it one year at a time!
Owner Bronagh Harte has a Degree in Horticulture, over a decade’s experience in floristry and loves cactus.
I chatted with the woman behind the front counter for a little while, and she gave me some great advice on how to take care of my new Orchid plant I’m attempting to foster back to light….
Happy to see such a gorgeous store opening where I can see all the beautiful flowers as I walk by each day, although, this could prove dangerous to my wallet in a few weeks time… Nikki P.
First of all, this shop is just so beautiful, the displays the owner has outside so inviting (including small pots of lavender with signs saying ‘Smell Me’ which I never ignored)…
It finally happened when I killed my third plant, a cactus; I pretty much forced myself to ask the owner for an intervention. She walked me through the shop, giving me the lowdown on all the plants and specific instructions for their care…
I bought a lovely succulent/money plant and with her precise care instructions I was back barely a month later to ask for advice on how to re-pot him as he’d grown quite substantially, not to mention beautifully. She even supplied me with a larger plastic pot for this purpose for free. Sarah T
