Native Irish Wildflower Seed Mixtures Delivered by 'An Post' - Guaranteed for 3 years via Preservation 'Seed Mixture Cert' 
Celebrating 25 years and our truth is simple and unchanging..."Wildflower preservation seed mixtures are beautiful, educational, inspirational, great for wildlife and amazing to 'Bee' around. 
Wild flower meadow mixtures are far less work than lawns, or grass margins and can save you lots of money and time".
News: Extended farm Open days for 2015. As well as our annual summer open day, We are holding spring sowing demonstrations, venues/dates to be announced
Glás Farmers. CAP Rural Development Plan, - Sow Something that's Missing on your farm!
Green Low Carbon Agri-Environment Scheme (GLAS)

Payment levels: The department have announced  Native Wild Flower Margin @ €1.40 per metre

Seed prices range from 00.10 cent to 44 cent per metre, depending on soil type, location, seed mixture and sowing rates
Average price estimated for Irish farmers between 00.21 cent to 38 cent per metre for a suitable seed
This makes wildflower Pier 3 option very attractive. Seed Price varied greatly according to site and cost of species and soil or land suitability. 
Price is determined mainly if hand or machine harvested and seed size. Small seed or uncommon species is often the most expensive to produce
If allowed by your farm advisor, we recommend closing of your smallest sunny field and not fencing off a small 1000m2 area , 
as the cost of the fence will be the main cost in time and funds.
In  2014 we grew 5 times more extra seed for the Department of Agricultures RDP plan to assist farmers to grow wildflowers, 
in field margins, headlands and generally on the farm, esp' suited for Tillage farmers. 
Our crops are native Irish Origin, Fresh (unlike many foreign imports) and approved by DAFF.
Our products are Irish 'tried and tested' by Teagasc, NRA, Co Councils, Waterways Ireland Bord na Mona and Coillte
Since 1990,  Irish public and private customers have grown over 8000 acres of Irish wildflowers.
