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.

Lord Saye en Sele, better with age
Lord Saye en Sele - 6 May
Lord Saye en Sele is one of those auriculas that I feel whose blooms improve with age, this is the same plant photgraphed first on 22 April and secondly on the 6 May. The red/orange stripes become more apparent.
