Can anybody help me find a packet of Borage Seeds? I've looked many places in Dublin, but nowhere seems to have it.

Mr Fothergills and suttons seed which carry Borage Seed are stocked by most garden centres. But even though the garden centre stocks the brand they may not stock the seed you require especially if it is rarely asked for. If you go to the counter I am sure they could order the seed for you. Or maybe visit an English company like B & Q, they may carry here in Ireland everything they carry in England.
Otherwise there is always the old realiable, see Borage seed

Hi

Loads of places seem to sell them online.....The Organic Centre in Rossinver is usually a safe bet to get hold of some. They have run out at the moment though, so that's not much use to you...., but here's the link anyway....

They might have some at www.wildflowers.ie... the online shop is being built at the moment so I don't know if they have any.....not much help again I'm afraid....but there is a contact name and email address.

Thompson and Morgan do them though if you can't find someone to get seeds off for free............:which are my favourites......

I spent hours on ebay last night looking at seeds. I found an Irish company who sell a huge range of flower and veg seeds very cheaply and bought 4 lots, plus postage came to 5.67e.

Thanks Verge Laughing Laughing Laughing
When you click on a product they give great detail and advice on all aspects of sowing ,watering etc.
