The new website from the Unwins/Westland stable will be the first site by a UK seed house specifically for the Irish amateur garden market.

There will be a large variety of products available online, including vegetables and flower seeds, seed potatoes, onions, shallots and garlic.  All varieties are available on the Marshalls UK website, with the only exception being that no vegetable or ornamental plants will be available initially.

The payment system for the site automatically accepts Euro’s for Irish customers. 

Both websites will be linked so that Irish customers can transfer their online basket to the Irish site should they reach the checkout on the UK site.

Martin Harvey, MD at Marshalls said,

"We are delighted that we have a bespoke website for our Irish customers.  No other UK seed company has done this so far and we feel that it is long overdue.  Gardening is such a growing industry and we need to encourage more people to grow their own vegetables and fruit."
