About me

I live on the NE border of Bristol UK.
my soil is slightly acid and clay,I have lived here a long time and have mature trees and shrubs under which grow many shade loving plants.The garden is about a 1/4 of an acre. and faces east in the morning.enough of that.
My passion for many years has been the Primula family
Many grow in the ground others in pots within two glass houses.For the past 30 years I have enjoyed hybridizing them ( if you see a stradbrook prefix ) listed it came originlly from me.I
I love all kinds of plants and bulbs many hardy cyclamen, anemones, some orchids, peonies, and many more.I will start list names and some pictures soon.
Ps my springer is Jamie
