Hi,

I'm looking to expand the plot with some fruit. I've found future forest, but is there any where else in Ireland that does mail order (preferably with a website) that I could compare varieties and prices? Anyone had any experience of using future forests, as they do have most of what I want?

Thanks,

I've never used Irish Seedsavers, but am planning to do so as soon as I am ready to plant my little orchard. Have a look at their website...they do really good and important work down in Co. Clare

Thanks. I have used Irish Seed Savers before (actually only ordered some seeds last week) and no issues. They didn't have the apple varieties I was looking for - I had heard some varieties recommended on GQT a couple of weeks ago that I think would suit my exposed, location (future forests do). I guess they might have varieties that would do a similar job.

Just to say, I tried the garden bargains site - the link to "edibles" was either broke or non existant.

At the moment I'm probably going for future forests, but haven't done anything about it yet. It's too wet, and I've to extend my deer fence first (who've enjoyed my cheapo lidl/ aldi trees).

Reading the IG daily gives me inspiration to push the boundaries of my plant knowledge and motivates me to do the hard core labor that is necessary for results. Someone said they enjoy digging. Well I tore up half of my rampant ground cover as a result. Time now is to start some seeds and cuttings as there has been so much rain. Noticed that the stakes I put in of tree branches for the tomatoes have sprouted leaves. I will sow some tree seeds at this time to see how they do. Here's a good site someone else recommended but the url shows seeds for the Japanese birch variety.http://www.seedaholic.com/betula-platyphylla-var-japonica-japanese-white-birch.html
Going to search the Chinese import stores for Goji berries and to find an indoor plant propagator.

that's ambitious alright, you must have a serious amount of patience to grow trees from seeds. If you have excess Goji you'll have no trouble finding takers for them here, Goji is one biggest and most followed threads on the forum
best of luck.
