A few auriculas have started to flower in the garden and in pots. These are among my favourite of all the primula's.

It is indeed that time of year again. The Theatre is filled up again.

Nice plants, John.


Palustris, it looks a bit dark inside your Theatre. Have you considered covering the inside with alu-foil?

Thanks, not bad for an old pallet and some other bits of waste timber. Mind it is now not big enough so I may need to extend it. That's the trouble with people selling lovely looking Auriculas at AGS Shows etc.
