Irish Seed Savers

Tallamh

Our main objective is to protect Ireland’s food crop heritage for future generations. Our work focuses on the conservation of heirloom vegetable seeds and Irish heritage apple trees. In recent years we have expanded the scope of our work to include crop varieties from all over the world that are suitable for Ireland’s unique growing conditions.

Irish Seed Savers Association maintains the country’s only public seed bank, with over 600 non-commercially available varieties of seed. We also house the national collection of Irish heritage apple trees in our orchards, with over 180+ unique varieties.  Throughout the year we run a wide range of workshops, host school tours, and invite the public to participate in our events days. We encourage communities to come together to share seeds and plants, all with the aim of promoting Ireland’s biodiversity.

Blooming Native

Tallamh

Blooming Native Wildflowers Seeds have been at the heart of my family history since 1859, when my great great great grandfather, William Power, opened his first nursery, florist, and seed merchant’s business in Waterford.

Since then, the Power family business has been centred on quality seed production and continues to operate a successful agricultural seed business.

With a passion for our environment, I want to share how wildflower seeds can play their part in biodiversity and reveal the joy of Native Wildflowers in our ecosystem. I am grateful to be able to harness my family expertise in seed and continue this tradition as a new and sixth generation of the Power family.

Sowing wildflower seeds will provide a habitat for pollinators, seeds for wild birds, support biodiversity, promote our wellbeing and bring us joy. Blooming Native mixes can be used anywhere, whether it be your garden or the greater countryside. 

Native Wildflower seeds will reward in so many ways.

Give it a go!
