Is there a website (attached to a Garden Centre preferably)
where you can browse seed collections and general garden equipment?

I know this is possible in the UK but some things can be hard to obtain from there (strawberry plugs for example.

So is there anything in Ireland itself?

Have a look at this site and see if that is of any use to you ! I've never used it so can't vouch for it, but the actual shop has been around for ages.

yes I have dealt with them (by phone) in the past.
But there doesn't seem to be a seed catalogue on the actual site (if I type in carrot in the search box no seeds come up and I can't seem to navigate to a choice of vegetable seeds-except seed potatoes)
I would like to be able to order strawbery plants.
Anyone else in Ireland?

I ordered strawberry plants from www.bakker-irl.com, this week. Its my first time using them so don't know what they're like. I have requested a seed catalogue from them also, so don't know anything about it yet. I'll let you know how I get on.

@ Michell M,

Bakker looks like a lovely site. (I've already got an unreasonably long wish-list there since you posted the link! Smile ) I'd appreciate if you'd let me know how you've found their service and product.

Try seedaholics.com. They are based in Westport, very reasonably priced and a huge choice.

bakkers plant material can be a bit shockingly small when you receive it. Read the dimensions well is my advice.

Never used them but I'lll tell you why I won't. Most people will think they are buying Irish off this site but it in fact Dutch. I have nothing against the Ductch but when the identical Dutch version of the site states below site name 'direct from Holland', and the Irish version states 'fresh from our nurseries', then I believe there is a bit of hiding going on.
As the dragons on 'dragons den' would say, 'for that reason, I'm out' . Smile

Hi. Yes, there is a garden centre which is exclusively online, mainly for plants and professional quality garden tools, but with a choice selection of seeds. For a large selection of seeds, check out Brown Bag seeds in Skibbereen.
