I live near Comber in Co Down N. Ireland, 10 miles south of Belfast and at the top of Strangford Lough.  I have been lucky enough to get some good stock from growers in England, Wales 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.
