Previously I lived in Sweden for nearly 20 years and my quest there was to hybridize auriculas to produce ever better plants suitable for the harsh Swedish climate. Whilst living there I also created and run Sweden’s Auricula Club. I've now returned to England to continue growing auriculas together with my daughter-in-law, Iris. Iris is also an enthusiastic & skilful Iris grower; many of her wonderful Irises can be seen on this blog.

‘Kent Pride’ is
blooming today, it’s one of my favourite Irises; I love its deep rich colours.
I obtained this several years ago on a visit to Scotland and it has done very
well here. /Ray
