I recently heard that most plants sold in Ireland are grown in compost treated with pesticides which is damaging our native insect life. Anyone know where i could buy pesticide free plants?

Anyone know where you can get Barley Straw? Want to see if it'll help clean up a pond. Unfortunately i don't know any farmers.

Thanks
