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.
The Roe deer are still feasting on the tulips
and it also appears that they have eaten all our ‘Blåsippa’ (hepatica), we had
a very nice display at the back of the house, but the young twins seem to have
eaten the lot. The twins were in the back garden whilst mum was in the front
garden eating tulips; dad is a bit shyer and stays mainly in the fields. One
good thing about auriculas is that neither the deer or the hares eat them.
The four resident Roe deer are being a bit
of a nuisance at the moment, the first tulips are just beginning to show
themselves and the deer have taken to eating them for breakfast. So every
morning we have to open the window and politely ask them to go somewhere else.
Anna one of my own green edged fancies is always one of the first to come into bloom. She is very hardy and has a very strong scent.
I've been cleaning and checking my auriculas which I will have for sale later in April, the snow has delayed things a little, but I should have around 150 different named varities of auriculas for saleby the middle of April.
