Have you tried Future Forests ? http://www.futureforests.net/

They may stock what you need, maigheomac.

Oh, somebody please ask for my elder, alder, crab apple and black-thorn seedlings and yearlings, please! I've gone and developed fibromyalgia and can't get out in the wind long enough to plant them. Sad I'll even throw in a few fancy plants if you'll take them and plant them in a happy home. Ah, and I have some lilacs too, all up for grabs for the fitter members to distribute wheresoever they like. I can get them delivered to anywhere in North Antrim, perhaps as far as Derry, but if anyone wanted a real adventure they could come up to Torr for them. Honestly, nobody's gone missing on account of cannibals up here for many years, many, many years. Laughing Oh, and just another thing, they don't need digging up, they're planted mostly in those large, mushroom cartons that supermarkets throw out, so they shouldn't have picked up any pests or whatever from the soil even. I can let you know more details about what I have if you contact me.

Fantastic selection of trees at Hayley nurseries in geashill. 12 acres in total and very reasonably priced Call John o mahony on 0876260407.He will arrange planting too.No fancy advertising helps to keep the cost down.I just got 10 mature trees for under 300 euros

Thanks Jimmy
I'll keep an eye out for the Guelder/Spindle if I'm down that direction of the country. I definitely want a few shrubs in my garden at some stage.

Thanks Sive, for the Future Forests website, I hadn't heard about this, looks like a great range


I have actually had some progress sourcing native varieties at last.

Having spoken to a sound chap from CELT nurseries, I am able to source about 3/4 of the trees/shrubs that I was looking for....all from native seed. So very happy about this. I think Coillte could have been a lot more helpful than they were. From what I hear they do actually have the native varieties but have closed the door on Joe Soaps like me and seem to only supply to retailers.........a pity.
Very impressed with CELT Nurseries though and really impressed with their whole ethos.

As an aside, I am taking a bit of a risk and have ordered Yew hedging for the front of the house. The risk is that the ground is heavy/damp clay soil which is not supposed to be to the Yews liking. I am thinking of taking the chance anyway, am I wasting my time I wonder?

Dinahdabble,
very sorry to hear about your fibromyalgia, that can't be easy.
Many thanks for the plants offer, though I don't think I could make the trip to collect them for the foreseeable future.
Anyway. I hope they find a good home.
