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.

SYLVIA what are you doing!!!!!!!
Ray's double SYLVIA
One of my mother plants, SYLVIA has decided that
despite the minus temperatures, to bloom again. I’ve explained to her that it’s
too late in the year to bloom and have now cut of the flower stems so that she
can keep her strength for the winter.
