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.

Green Shank in the border
Green Shank can be seen here blooming in an open border, the farina has been spoiled by recent heavy rain, this is the disadvantage of growing fancy auriculas with farina in open borders./Ray
