Looks very much likely.

Some auriculas that have been planted out in the garden for the past 5 yrs or so.
They do a lot better for me this way, and I've not lost a single one.
No problems with either vine weevil or root aphids.

Any Auricula experts out there?
 Is this one sufficiently different to be worth giving a name to and propagating. Seed parent Exhibition Blue, open pollinated.

Eric, the mechanism the National Auricula and Primula Society has to guard against the duplication of names and the naming of inferior plants seems to me to be a good one. Plants are entered in Shows as 'Seedling' and those the judges think are worthy of a winners card the grower is invited to name the plant. If you have a local Auricula grower I'm sure they would be prepared to give you an opinion on your plant.

Nearest one that I know of is in Telford. But the show is in Solihull, the week after the AGS one. Would love to go, but could not manage both.
Ah well, will leave it just for my pleasure.
