Hi all

I am tired of going to home base and woodies! Is there a good big garden centre that would have a wide range of veggies seedlings and veggie seeds, on the northside of co Dublin.

Regards

Andy

rolestown garden centre (between ashbourne and swords) and the ratoath garden centre (between ashbourne and ratoath) are both worth a punt, they're the ones i go to most often; especially the latter. john lord in the ratoath garden centre recently lent us a 500 litre tank and pump and filter to facilitate relining a pond, so top marks to them.

They don't do veggies, though.

Hello, My first post as I am joining Irish Gardeners today.

If you are ever in Virginia Co. Cavan, please drop into Pergola Nurseries on the Ballyjamesduff road out of Virginia town.
Its a very good garden centre and you will get great advice from its owner Donal Mc Evoy.
Best Regards
