Primula auricula and Auricula hybrids
« on: April 17, 2018, 01:52:11 PM »
Rather pleased with this seedling. Could be better if it was 'pin eyed' rather than 'thrum' thogugh.

Rotated the pix for you, Christine. Your Auricula theatre must be looking great with these  gems on display.

What I find interesting is that I have lots of very similar one to those which I have grown from seed from the Auricula society. I should go and take some pictures.

Nice collection Christine, takes me back 20 years or more when I grew nothing else.

Yes, yes Maggi, and they bloom for quite a long time too... still figuring out how to grow them to show standard though.

"Official " auricula shows are terribly strict, aren't they? Only one  rosette, single stem etc??   Sounds tricky to me- we are normally wanting  multi-headed plants  all the time!
