Watching a seed germinate and grow is a hugely exciting part of your gardening year: you hardly dare believe it's going to work, yet invariably that tiny kernel sends up a sturdy green sprout. The plants you raise from seed are always a bit special, so this year try raising something new from the hundreds of varieties from our plant centre.
The most delicious herbs from your own garden... That's what you dream of, right? After all, nothing is more delicious than a fresh mint leaf in your glass or a sprig of thyme in your dinner that you have grown yourself. It may be quite a task for impatient people to roll up their sleeves, get those hands dirty and then wait for something green to sprout. You can just as well buy the 'fresh' herbs from the supermarket, right? We would really like to advise you to get started with herb seeds yourself. After all, there are many reasons why starting a herb garden is also for you:
- First of all, taking care of your herb seedlings is a very relaxing and rewarding hobby.
- Homegrown herbs are much tastier than those so-called fresh herbs from the supermarket. You taste the difference!
- No need for those trips to the supermarket where all those herbs wrapped in plastic are drying out.
- Vegetable gardening is therefore a sustainable hobby in any way.
With our vegetable seeds, you can transform your (vegetable) garden into a green, healthy and delicious paradise. You can quickly grow the tastiest tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce and other delicious vegetables. All you need is some free garden space, possibly a greenhouse, some patience and our seeds. Think about which vegetables you eat most often and stop by our plant centre to pick out those favourites in seed form. Always check the supplied information before you start sowing, for example regarding their preferred location or best sowing period. If you have any questions, you can of course always contact us.
Nothing is more fun than growing your own flowers and watching the seed grow into one of the most beautiful plants in your garden. It is also very educational for young and old. At Ahern Nurseries & Plant Centre you will find different kinds of flowers you can grow from seed, but we also have mixed flower seeds that provide a true splendour of colour. Check the packaging if you want to get those green fingers started; it will tell you when it's time to sow your favourite flowers. You will not be disappointed and will make the bees and butterflies very happy too! In our garden centre in Limerick, you'll find seeds to sow under cover in spring for colourful containers all summer, including pelargoniums, petunias, surfinias and nemesia. Several perennials are very easy from seed, flowering in their first year and coming back again and again. Try echinacea, rudbeckia, grasses like deschampsia and hardy geraniums from our range.
Organic seeds get their strength from the fact that the mother plant has not been sprayed with pesticides or chemical fertilizers. This ensures that you have clean seeds without residues of chemicals and other nasty elements. So much better for the environment! The range of organic seeds is increasing every year.
