En fantastisk föreställning av Auriculas, ‘Din Trädgård’, Örebro, 19 - 21 april

Ray Molin-Wilkinson, som är specialist på att odla Primula Auricula i Sverige och även den som startat Sweden’s Auricula Club, kommer att visa en del av sin unika samling av Aurikler på Trädgårdsmässan “Din Trädgård”, Conventum, i Örebro, den 19 till 21 april.

Ray kommer att ställa ut tillsammans med Örebros Trädgårdsförening & Studiefrämjandet.

Ray’s samling består av mer än 300 olika Aurikler. Många av dessa har han själv hybridiserat & korsat fram, för att ta fram nya plantor som passar bättre för det svenska klimatet.
På samtliga mässdagar, så kommer Ray även att visa ”Hur man tar hand om Aurikler”.
Under denna rubrik så kommer han att visa hur man blandar den bästa jorden för dessa plantor, rekommendera krukor som är passande, hur man förökar Auricula genom delning, samt ge närings- & bevattningsråd.

Han kommer även att finnas här samtliga dagar för att ge råd och svara på frågor, som besökare har gällande Auricula.

  1. Ray, you are an expert on primroses, I want to ask you a question: I bought a blue primrose in a supermarket, it's still flowering, I know that primroses like colder temperatures, I'd like to replant it into my garden, but I don't know when to do this. I'm from Poland, currently is about 1C degrees but in two weeks time 10C degrees is forecast. Should I do it at the beginning of March or later in March when it will be a bit warmer? I'll be grateful for your advice :)

    1. Hej Dewberry

      It's nice to hear from you, thank you for the compliment but my area of expertise is in Primula Auriculas, there are thousands of other Primula species around.
      The Primulas that are normally sold in supermarkets are from the Polyanthus group, they are normally raised in greenhouses to bloom early for the florist trade, supermarkets etc.
      They like half shade and damp soil, they can take quite low temperatures, but as yours has most probably been at plus temperatures indoors for some time I would wait until it is at least plus 10c before planting out, so that it does not receive a shock.
      You may be disappointed when it blooms again as I have found that they never have such large or vibrant blooms as when they were first raised in the greenhouse.
      See RHS link for more info. http://apps.rhs.org.uk/plantselector/searchbynameresults?nm=polyanthus
      Best regards
