See what we have sown in Ireland over 25 years


Yes, from time to time we have sowed perfectly good seed and it failed to grow,
Other times we sowed older seed that did germinate. That is why we offer full or part guarantee. 

Weed identification guide

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 three to five years, sometime seven, 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.
In grassy meadows, species such as Yellow Rattle, Eyebright or Red Bartsia should be established where possible.
