The last auricula blooms for 2013



Frost damaged border blooms.

We now have regular night-time frosts and the last borders that are still in bloom feel the consequences. Those that are on the Auricula Theatre or in the cold frames do better. I’m now moving my auriculas that are in pots to their winter locations. /Ray

Auricula Exchange, new auriculas from Ina in Germany

I exchanged some auriculas with Ina a club member in Germany. Ina sent me in return six healthy new divisions, I now have four new named auriculas; Lolita, Roxborough, Blusher, Pang Tiger and two of Ina's own double yellows in my collection.
Thank you Ina.

Matilda has buds.

Matilda one of my own grey edges is coming into bloom, the late autumn blooms are not normaly as good as the spring ones, but do, none the less brighten these dull autumn days. The farina on her leaves adds to her attraction.
