  • Wine in Green Boxes

    Wine in green boxes? What about purple? Easy now. There's no re-branding under way. When we say wine in green boxes, we mean 'green'. Bubble Brothers have introduced Pulpsafe, a sustainable, recycled and recyclable range of packaging: the most eco-friendly way yet of getting our precious goods to their destination...
  • The Irish Apple (i)

    On making wine in Ireland, and alternatives to it.
  • Pelargonium sidoides

    Those sturdy little plants I brought back from England a while ago have all growed up. They make me very happy. Thank you to Wootten's of Wenhaston for good specialist nurserymanship. For all your other geraniums and so on, make a date in the diary to go along to Hosford's...
  • Ground cover wine

    Well, over at the Wed Wose Café there's been some straight talking about Irish blogs (don't get involved if you're not expecting the Spanish Inquisition, &c.), including those that are [...] little more than turgid regurgitations of the news with some self-righteous indignation thrown in for good measure, more still...

  • Whassup? this bank holiday weekend

    Hosford's Garden Centre are hosting a farmers' market. There'll be puppet shows, composting demonstrations, and of course all those great plants. You might consider a spot of guerrilla gardening to brighten up a corner that no-one seems bothered about. Lidl and so on have super-cheap annual seeds that they're trying...
  • Irish Blog Awards champagne

    Thanks to the generous sponsorship of Hosting365, there will be something rather bubbly for the winners at this year's Irish Blog Awards. I'm just about to start it on its journey to the other side of the Pale (and Interesting, so I've heard). I'll be introducing some new wines at...
  • Pelargonium <em>sidoides</em>

    Nothing to do with wine, except inasmuch as wine is a fair paradigm for many another human enthusiasm. I'm very excited to be returning from Suffolk today with a couple of plants of Pelargonium sidoides from Woottens of Wenhaston in my hand luggage. Assuming they're not adjudged to be offensive...
