  2. Native and Pollinator-Friendly Plants: We believe that gardens have the power to create havens for local wildlife. That's why McD's Garden and Home offers a diverse array of native plants that are well-suited to local climates and ecosystems. Native plants provide essential habitats and food sources for local fauna, supporting the natural balance of ecosystems. Additionally, our selection includes pollinator-friendly plants, such as vibrant wildflowers and nectar-rich blooms, which attract bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. By incorporating these plants into your garden, you can create a thriving and biodiverse oasis. Watch the video below of Leo and Adrian from our Loughrea store, as they unveil an assortment of pollinator plants specially curated for your garden.

  3. Sustainable Watering Practices: At McD's Garden and Home, we embrace sustainable practices not just within our product offerings but also in our operations. Our Galway Crystal Store, utilizes an innovative rainwater collection system. By collecting rainwater from the store's roof, we harness a valuable resource that is both neutral and ideal for watering our plants. This approach minimizes the use of freshwater resources and ensures our plants receive the nourishment they need while reducing environmental impact.
