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.

A French Connection
Lilac Mist 2014
These five doubles come from a French grower; all do well here, but like most doubles they need a liittle extra feed in the spring to perform at their best. Tregor Orange in particular has a tendancy to be single if not given a bit more nourishment./Ray
