SAP Nurseries were first established in South Allenwood, Co. Kildare, hence the name SAP (South Allenwood Plants). The nursery moved to its current location in 1986 where today the Group operates a total of 7 nurseries.
The SAP Group Nurseries are among the Top 10 European Nurseries. The site totals 310 acres of production including 1,000,000 field grown trees and containerized production of 900,000 potted plants. In addition, the Group has a 10,000 unit Airpot tree production facility.
Sap Nurseries has the largest range of Irish grown trees in Ireland with as many as 296 varieties available for sale in as many as 15 different size groups.
We have specialised in Garden wholesale for over 40 years and are recognised as having the highest quality and fastest delivery times in the marketplace today.
In addition to our tree range, SAP also grows an extensive range of Herbs, Shrubs, Hedging, Grasses and Herbaceous plants.
The Cahir site includes an Arboretum where the Group showcases its specimen trees to enable our clients and architects to examine our trees in full maturity. In addition, the New Inn Specimen Tree Nursery covering 105 acres, hosts the more mature and semi-mature trees in a setting unrivaled anywhere in Ireland. This site is frequently visited by Landscape Architects, Designers and Building Architects in search of quality specimen trees.
