John and Elsie Clarke founded Johnstown Garden Centre in August 1974, on a greenfield site in the quaint ancient Norman village of Johnstown, Naas, Co. Kildare in Ireland.
The company expanded rapidly and in 1980, sons Jim and Sean joined the firm and today manage the site jointly. John and Elsie are still involved on a regular basis but taking it a bit easier now after 39 years, both enjoying very good health!
In 2005, due to continuous expansion the Garden Centre moved in its entirety to a new site in Johnstown directly opposite the old centre. A brand new Johnstown Garden Centre was born! This site is 6 times bigger than the old one and features a very exciting new building with very extensive plant halls with Ireland’s largest plant selection and a bright airy shopping environment, a café and very extensive car and coach parking.
The Centre has been the recipient of many prestigious awards and recognition during the years including “Garden Centre of the Year”, and a 5 star quality award from Horticulture Ireland, the government agency responsible for Irish Horticulture. In August 1999 as we celebrated 25 years at Johnstown we were hosts to the World Congress of the International Garden Centre Association, with nearly 300 delegates from 16 countries attending. They made a return visit again in 2014, our 40th year!
In 2013, the store size was doubled again and an expanded new Cafe with 200 seats was added making it a real destination centre for all the family. We were one of the first companies in Ireland to have a website and now we welcome you to our new full webshop. Our aim has always been to be truly a Gardeners’ Garden Centre. The entire garden centre is fully wheelchair accessible, with special parking bays and toilet facilities.
