Sandro's Native Irish Wildflower Seed Mixtures are Guaranteed for 3 years, beautiful, educational, inspirational, great for wildlife and amazing to 'Bee' around. 
My wild flower meadow mixtures are far less work than lawns and can save you lots of money and time.
Farmers. We have spent 2014 growing extra seed for the Department Of Agricultures RDP plan to assist farmers to grow wildflowers, 
We are now cleaning the seed from the 2014 harvest, Seed Sales to the general public have now ended for 2014, 
When we next be open on Feb 1st 2015 we will again help and advise all customers in time for spring sowing.
Professional enquiries welcome over winter.
Seed costs from 8 cents for annuals up to 36 cent for our highest price seed mixture, average price e00.255 to e.00.285 net per square metre. 
Price varied greatly according to site and cost of species. Our range of native species are easy to install, low energy and lock up more carbon than lawn.

Our products once correctly established, will last indefinitely and become more Bio-diverse and colourful as the years pass by. 
The early years before and after sowing are ever changing and the most challenging. Weeds have to be controlled  Most products must be maintained annually.

After five years the soil fertility will drop and weeds will fail to invade and grass will stay small, and more flora will appear from your original sowing. 
Seed supplied with or without grass. 
Yellow Rattle should be encouraged in grass swards.
Once established the resulting wildflower meadows ARE BIODIVERSITY and you have to 'Bee'. in one to know its charm.
And you will have directly saved another generation of Native Irish Wildflowers, you too, will have made a difference.
Our Wildflower products directly protect Nature, enhance the environment, and conquer the elements.
Education is key to our National Campaign, Please blog about this site and our albums
I get about 10 complaints per year, where meadows failed, usually in very dry summers, new seedlings can struggle, but they recover with rain.
I Supply: Farms, Co Councils, Parks, Roads, Public and Private Gardens and Gardeners,
I Advise and Supply to Infrastructure, Industrial and Corporate sectors, With your purchase we directly fund our conservation activities. Thank You 
 
 
Most wildflower meadows require one cut per year, then rake and remove the dead grass / brash to allow for more germination  
Russbourgh House. This year our customers said

Hi Sandro,
We sowed the seed on 18th May, well we had great success with it in the walled garden. 
Since around the 18th of July, everybody comments on how well they look and we have been telling everyone where we got the seed. 
Thanks again.

Clare Hayter. Russborough House

So called wildflowers: 

Retailers and online sellers are selling American, Chinese, or European flora claiming that they are wildflowers instead they are cultivated flowers. 

Imports are not native Irish wildflowers and not suitable for nature conservation, and
they may not survive beyond the first year.

You will end up paying for more for expensive packaging / cheap substitutes. 

Ask the horticulture division of Bord Bia, or the Department of Agriculture, for a list of growers of Irish wildflowers. ie not just resellers and importers

All proper seed mixture have an Irish origin barcode and or E.U. Plant health passport
