Brilliant list there Wedgetomb. Will chase some of those up in the coming week to seeds and other items what they have in stock. Blight free potatoes sound good if a bit unbelievable, we'll see. Smile

Quick update. I ordered seeds at 1.00am on wed morning, they were delivered this morning!! Each lot of seeds came in a plastic pack with a typed sheet of information on every possible thing you would need to know,including companion planting.
They are based in Co Mayo.

I am looking to buy seed potato to plant now for Christmas - there are a few places in the UK selling them but nobody seems to deliver to Ireland.

Does anybody have any ideas?

Got all my fruit this year from Future Forests

Great packaging and the postage was cheap.

10 x raspberries
25 x strawberries
3 x blueberries
2 x tayberry
1 x sunberry
1 x boysenberry
2 x gooseberry
3 x currants

all for €88 including postage. They even advised me that if I was going to plant them out over a weekend they'd post on a wednesday so that it would get there and not be sitting in the packaging for a few days (or to save me trying to get them heeled in during the week). Will be using them again.

This isn't a mail order or internet site but it is good for seed sowers who didn't label their seeds and can't remember what they have. Or for those who want to plant something that germinates well and the conditions for it. http://theseedsite.co.uk/db.html

There's a good database, pictures for identification, comments on collection etc. It's quite expensive to get a packet of seeds which you need specs to see, that get lost if your hands are wet and dirty, so knowing what you're getting into when purchasing is beneficial.

And for those who like to increase their stock of plants as they wander the roadways, straying close to other people's gardens, you can find out what a seed pod might look like on the plant, whether it is viable etc. Eg. a hebe you may want.

Hi Krista, I am Lucky enough to live near to Rossinver and can't recommend their seeds highly enough. Not only are they good quality but are organic, and come with lots of support at the end of a phone. They also do lots of courses and no I am not related just a fan
