    I enjoy raising trees from seed...FREE to take:

    Three horse chestnuts, planted autumn 2017, conkers collected from around the corner on Glenageary Upper. Will need a bit of space for each.

    Four crabapples, planted in autumn 2017, collected from Fishertown Co. Laois during an end of season barge holiday along the Grand Canal.

    Come and collect, take one or two or all, PM me for address.

    A few Horse radish, Jerusalem artichoke and Chinese lantern roots/tubers to give away.

    Warning... they are hard to get rid of once you plant them. .

    I'm in South country Dublin. Pm me if you want some.

    Does anyone know where I can get my hands on some interesting mints? I'm on the hunt for pineapple/apple mint, lavender mint, ginger mint...
    All I could come across online was seeds on Amazon, more than likely from China

    I could dig up a clump of basil mint if you are in the North County Cork area to collect it. The leaves take on a nice purple shade at times and like most mints it is fairly vigorous and has nice flowers. Tastes a bit different than basil in my opinion but is a bit different than the standard garden mint.

    I do not have any seeds left but I do have 10 healthy plants full of beans so I will definitely have some seeds in a few weeks. I will give you some for next year if interested.

    That post was from 7 years ago!!!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 29,737 ✭✭✭✭ Graces7


    Would be glad of part packets of older seed as I seem to have left it late to order.

    Small range; leafy greens eg kale; carrots, broad beans and sunflowers.. sweet peas

    I have abundance of part packets of peas from last year so will enjoy those

    This is when I really miss being able to shop! strict covid-seclusion here.
