Welcome to my blog it is mainly about my passion in growing Primula Auriculas and my quest by hybridizing them to produce ever better plants suitable for the Swedish climate. I've been growing auriculas in Sweden for over 11 years now and hopefully my experiences will encourage others to begin growing these fantastic plants.
I have quite a few cup plants (Silphium perfoliatum) in the garden, this is a very tall late flowering plant from North America. It has square stems which hold water at the leaf joints; hence it's name. It has enjoyed all the rain we've had lately as have the bamboos and Miscanthus grasses.
Found a Great Green Bush Cricket, better
known here in Sweden as the Grön vårtbitare (green wart biter) as apparently
they have been used here to bite away warts. They are both carnivorous and arboreal,
with their main diet being of flies, caterpillars and larvae; so hopefully they
do some good in the garden. If not at least they have a pleasant chirping sound
which makes the garden sound more tropical. Some of my larger Day Lilies are also blooming now.
