The fine weather has finally arrived and sent us flocking outdoors! One upside to the pandemic has been that many garden centres have now built a great online presence which has taken their product range from local to national. So no matter where we live in the country, we now have a superb range to choose from. In the next instalment of my ‘Support Irish’ series I am bringing you a selection of fantastic outdoor living businesses that deliver nationwide and will have your garden looking amazing in no time. I had countless great businesses to choose from so there really is no excuse not to ‘Support Irish’ when it comes to the great outdoors!
SUPPORT IRISH – It is more important now than ever that we make it our duty to support local businesses. It is estimated that over €4 billion was spent by Irish consumers on International online stores last year. My mission with this ‘Support Irish’ series is to showcase the best that Irish retail has to offer while educating consumers and making it simple and easy for you to support local businesses.
