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.

Scorcher, Don Carlos & Groupie blooming in Salisbury
Scorcher, red self.
I'm now settling into my new home in Salisbury, England.
Some of the auriculas in Iris's collection are now just coming into bloom.
They brighten the day when I wonder in the small garden, packed with auriculas & Irises.
