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.
