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.

The Badgers been busy
The local badger has been busy digging up
some of my auriculas planted out in the borders. It has taken the opportunity
to look for insects and worms during the mild weather; at least the ground is
still not frozen so I can replant them,
