  • Weeds and Weeding

    A weed is a plant in the wrong place or a plant that we have not yet found a use or liking for – but they are still plants and part of the overall biodiversity that exist in nature.  Not necessarily the bad guys but not your best friends either! Benefits of weeds Weeds encourage Biodiversity. They attract pollinators and are part of a healthy eco-system. There is no such thing as a weedy lawn – look at it as a wildflower meadow or insect heaven.  A ‘perfect’ green lawn is akin to a desert from nature’s point of view. Weeds attract pollinators. Many
  • Cover and protect with netting

    Birds, rabbits and insects are unfortunately very efficient pests and will polish off a crop of strawberries or cabbages before you can blink.  Netting is the answer - but the trick is to get the right netting for the job. It is important to consider the size of the net mesh and the strength. You can either hold netting down with bags of gravel or stones  or make things easy for yourself and use our steel pins. They are 20cm long, made from steel and come in packs of 10 or boxes of 100. Can also be used to hold down drip-pipe irrigation. Strong and sturdy - will
  • Irrigation

    If you have a polytunnel you will know how long it takes to water your produce.  Why not install an irrigation system and free up all that time that you spend watering? Drip Irrigation Perhaps the easiest and most cost-effective way to water your crops is with a drip irrigation system where pipes are laid along the ground and water seeps out of spaced holes directly where your plants need the moisture.  For as little as approx. €85 you could irrigate an 8 mt tunnel.  You can also add to or change the layout of your system whenever you wish. Benefits of drip

  • 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
