I think we all underestimate the power we have in our wallets. If we think carefully about where and how we spend our money, we can make quite a difference to the survival of Irish companies and trade ...

Unless they were perpetual fruiting, I would go with something moveable, as once they've finished fruiting they can go outside. The cover gives an earlier crop, but once they've done I think that's it ...

I'd try the local co-op first, as by the time you add in postage, even if they were nominally more expensive it may work out cheaper.

Is the ground stoney? I've got one of the chillington hoes (the ...

you can plant spuds using a dibber but of course they will have to dug out!
