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.

King Arthur & the Knights of the Round Table.
I have three auriculas in my collection which
are named around the saga of King Arthur.
Camelot:- raised by Ken Gould in 1967
Excalibur :- raised by Les Allen in 1988
Merlin :- raised by Allan Hawkes in 1990
