Geoffrey Porter

    I live near Comber in Co Down N. Ireland, 10 miles south of Belfast and at the top of Strangford Lough which was recently featured (and in the last four) of the Sir Trevor Macdonald's programme, Britain's favourite views.  I have been lucky enough to get some good stock from growers in England and Scotland  as well as some from Blackmore and Langdon and Bellcross Nurseries. I particularly like growing Pendulas and as well as the usual named ones, have a few interesting ones I raised from the Antonelli's seed strain from California..
