  Great Irish Horticulture 


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.

Your purchases also supports jobs in 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 others such as flax, 

its not a native mix, even if it says wildflower, 

they are cultivated forms of wildflowers and not natives.


BEWARE OF BREXIT IMPOSTER POSERS IMPORTING!!! Even an Irish phone and address does not mean the firm or the WILDFLOWER SEED OR PLANT stock is Irish. It MUST SAY: Provenance: Native Irish, Sourced in Ireland and Tested by DAFM.
NOR SHOULD IT BE A CERTIFIED AGRI-FORBE as many are cheap CULTIVATED VARIETIES OF IMPORTED WILDFLOWER 'types and varieties'' called Forbes and are EU Certified for FOR FARM USE ONLY
. Many Irish sellers, are importing flora, that they called wild. it's not.


We are mainly a mail order business serving the trade and public with Seed mixtures. plants and individual species.We are passionate about wildflowers. 
No other business produces Irish provenance native flora.  We grow acres of wild sourced seed, 
we travel miles to find sources we can collect from.  These small wild seed lots are then propagated and farm grown as crops 

Many of our species are first harvested by hand. 
Some crops we can take with combine harvesters, brush harvesters and our own bespoke methods.

Then the seed-head, chaff and  seed is gathered,  bundled, transported, to our seed house, where its checked, dried, sorted, straw is removed, chaff is removed, 

After winnowing and sieving it's then  stored, to be mixed and packed, all in Ireland, for Irish growers.

Wildflowers are older than the oldest antiques, Brighter than the newest novelty
