S1 Ep 4 | Vick Ind, The Individual Plant Nursery

Good Honest Talk

Welcome to Episode 4 of Good Honest Talk.

In this episode, Claire is joined by Vick Ind, a horticulturist and business owner. 

Her business Individual Plant Nursery, is a small plant nursery based in west Waterford that specialises in rare, uncommon and quirky plans. All Vick’s plants are produced on-site from seed or cuttings & grown without rubbish applied or added. 

Vick began working as a gardener at Lismore Castle Gardens in 2013 & over the next decade honed her trade, eventually taking on the role of ornamental gardens supervisor. However, due to her MS diagnosis, Vick needed to change the way she worked and prioritise her own wellbeing.
