We are deeply saddened to announce that Terra Nova Garden is now closed forever.
When Martin took ill suddenly in February we knew that his journey to recovery would be a long one requiring lots of gentle care and quiet times. We are very blessed to have the fairies working with us on this and it’s only since Martin came home from hospital that I have felt strong enough to tell you our news.
Martin and I sincerely thank every single person who has visited and supported our garden for the past 22 years. You came here to experience the magic of Terra Nova but you always left behind just enough of your own magic to inspire us and to help us grow. We will carry that with us forever.
In 1999, with a young garden newly planted by two passionate but inexperienced gardeners, we were totally clueless to the fact that our little garden would one day win ‘Best Garden in Ireland’ and become one of Limericks most popular attractions. Thank you so very much for making this possible, it has been an incredible experience.
Although this news is very sad, this is not the end of Terra Nova Fairies. We want to continue helping you to create your own magical spaces so our online shop will remain open. If you are placing an order please leave us a comment in the notes at checkout, letting us know your favourite experience in our garden and the fairies will gift you a token charged with positive energy that you can carry with you wherever you go.
Stay magical. Love Deborah, Martin, Devlin, Hilda and all the fairies
