Burren Natural Raspberry Plants

So this year hasn't been the best year for growing strawberries - in Ireland at least. Between the rain, the wind and the lack of any real heat or sunshine, the poor strawberries didn't really stand a chance, at least not a chance of producing a decent crop.
The raspberries on the other hand are having a field day. Burren Berries stock a large supply of July/August cropping Irish raspberry plants. So far this year, we had a great crop from our small plantation at home, and there are more coming every day.
I've just uploaded a new blog with details about planting, growing and looking after raspberries. If you'd like to find out how to grow your own delicious raspberries, check it out HERE.
Cheers,
Andy

Introducing the Giant Sunflowers

Sunflowers and Nasturtiums
Burren Berries will launch our brand new organic Giant Sunflower Plants tomorrow at the  Ballyvaughan Farmers Market from 10am to 2pm. Grown from hand saved seeds, the saplings will grow into large plants - between 6 and 8 feet tall - and produce one very large and a number of smaller flowers.
Believe it or not, sunflowers grow really well in our unpredictable Irish summers - even on the west coast - and will fit right in in a sunny spot in pretty much every garden. For full growing information click GIANT SUNFLOWERS or visit our SHOP to make a purchase.

Burren Barries at the Clare Garden Festival

Burren Berries will kick off the 2015 growing season this Sunday, April 26, with our first outing of the year to the Clare Garden Festival in Ennis. To mark the occasion, we are also unveiling a brand new produce - Burren Natural Raspberry Plants.
Year old plants, they produce medium to large red fruits in July and August and will fruit this year. Just like the Burren Natural Strawberry Plants, these plants have been produced 100 per cent naturally, with no artificial fertiliser or pesticides and are born and bread in Clare - which means that they will be well able to handle whatever weather the Atlantic throws at us in the months and years ahead.
The Clare Garden Festival kicks off at 11am at the Ennis Showgrounds with heaps of garden related fun and more then 80 local exhibitors. If you can't make it to the garden festival, Burren Berries will return to the Ballyvaughan Farmer's Market on Saturday, May 4 - or just visit the online ONLINE SHOP.
Cheers
Andy
