Native Irish provenance flowers can survive your local climatic conditions and protect local wildlife.

Unlike non-native plants. when you buy native sourced Irish species they

flower at the same time as the wildlife that visits the plants,


Imported wildflowers can bring plant disease and pests to Ireland.

Our products are price competitive with EU. and UK  imports.

Our products cannot be compared to USA imported flora as they are totally different

if a mix contain larkspur, calendula, blue lupine, Californian poppy or many other

they are cultivated forms of wildflowers and not natives.
