The Irish Seed Savers 2019 catalogue has just arrived: Make this year the year to discover the magic of growing some of your own food. Irish Seed Savers have done Trojan work saving valuable heritage seed varieties since 1996 so check out and support their work by becoming a member; irishseedsavers.ie.
Also make a note of Brown Envelope Seeds (brownenvelopeseeds.com) and get an early order in to be ready to sow seeds as soon as the soil temperature warms up (could be a while). Better still swing by the Brown Envelope Seeds stall at the Skibbereen Farmers’ Market on Saturday to meet Madeline and Holly for sage advice.
Then there is GIY (Grow it Yourself), check out their website — giy.ie — to access lots of invaluable advice and gardening tips or visit GIY HQ and café in Waterford.
