  • Copper Gardening Tools

    Beautiful to look at and a pleasure to use our Copper Garden Tools are amazing!  Sharp and lightweight they will give years of service. Why Chose Copper Garden Tools They have a much longer lifespan than tools made from iron. Copper is not magnetic – so does not disrupt the electrical fields in the soil. The design of these garden tools makes them especially light and effortless to use. They have a good sharp edge. Sirus Field Hoe - weight 900g Stay free of rust – but age with a graceful bronze patina, perfect for the coastal gardener. Minute amounts
  • Love your soil - learn about soil conditioners

    Is your soil good - or bad? Does it have a good diet, can it hold its drink?  Could it quite simply just be better – well behaved, good crops, good drainage and structure etc.  Most soils can be improved both in nutrient content and in structure by following good gardening practices.  Soil that is in good heart will be free-draining, easy to dig, have a crumbly texture and a healthy earthworm population. How to improve the condition of your soil Gathering leaves for leaf-mould Add organic matter as a soil conditioner. Compost and strawy animal manures provide
  • Klasmann organic compost for reliable results

    Unfortunately, not all composts are created equally and unfortunately you only discover this when you have poor germination.  Valuable time has been lost and there will be no early tomatoes or cabbages.  As with all things in life you get what you pay for - cheap compost=poor results. The only way to get consistent and reliable results is to use a consistent and reliable compost.  In our experience the only compost that delivers consistency, traceability, reliability time after time is Klasmann-Deilmann.  What’s so great about Klasmann? Good strong plugs with

  • What is Seaweed Fertilizer?

    Seaweed has been used for centuries to improve soil and feed stock. The west coast of Ireland has abundant quantities of seaweed - soils on the Aran Islands are made from a mixture of sand and seaweed! It is an amazing, natural product that is rich in trace elements, nutrients and alginate – and it has the added advantage of being a renewable and completely local natural resource. Harvesting Seaweed It is easier to harvest seaweed from above the low water line - it will be less wet. Limit your impact by picking lightly from several areas. Each patch of seaweed
  • Mill your own organic flour

    We might be hearing more about our often taken for granted staple grains in the near future. Poor harvests in Europe brought on by severe drought conditions this summer are likely to have an impact on the price of this normally cheap commodity. Another thing making headlines recently are concerns around the exuberant use of chemical sprays in cereal production. Particularly, the use of glyphosate as a pre-harvest treatment. This is the tip of the iceberg. I noted at a talk from a tillage expert which I attended recently that there are 380 herbicides registered
  • Seeds for Autumn Sowing Outdoors

    There's no good way to say this...but, Summer is waning. With the changing season (and temperatures!) we can turn our minds to what seeds we can sow that can cope with the lower levels of light and lower temperatures that the coming seasons will bring. Ideally seeds sown now should be grown in a polytunnnel or with a protective cloche outside, but the following seeds cope well with lower temperatures & light levels and can still be sown directly outdoors. If we have a mild enough September / October, these will grow within 8-10 weeks. SALADS Cornsalad - Has a
