Hi Steve
         Primula joan hughes is actually a hybrid and not pure allionii. Nevertheless your plant is a fine example and judging by the picture is not full of virus as many are, only producing small distorted streaked flowers. I guess you may have got it from Brian who's stock has always been virus free. Look after it . Great plant.

Hi Pat - thanks for the additional info, I thought it was a hybrid, just sloppy with my naming! It was actually a kind gift from Geoff Rollinson a couple of years ago but I suspect you're right, plant material may originally have come from Brian. I know Geoff has grown on and subsequently shown a number of Brian's primula hybrids.

See you at the Cyclamen Show on Saturday? This weird weather has been playing havoc with flowering times. At this rate everything will be over before the end of the month!

Hi Steve
      Yes I will be at the cyclamen show but not exhibiting. As the main interest at this show is coum and alpinum which I call the ugly sisters and have little interest in growing I will just bring some stuff to sell.

I know that sometimes the Cyclamen Society events are members only, but  I do not understand why  more effort is not being made to advertise them and drum up members   :-\

Yes, Graeme  - it's so confusing because of need to be  RHS  members to gain access.... it is open to anyone who is an RHS member OR who has paid entrance to Wisley. The show is on Sunday 7th February.

hmm let me think 47 to RHS or 47 extra to spend at Loughborough - only thing I would like to buy is a Coun Porcelain from Green Ice - add travel to Wisley and it makes it nearly as expensive as some of the snowdrops I have seen............

Hi Graeme
        I have a spare porcelain you can have for nought. Let me have your address and I will post it to you when it goes dormant no problem.

 To be fair (!!!)  entry to Wisley for one day  for non -members is   13 - which is more than I could or would pay.
 When I was a full-time Carer for my  Father that was more than one third of  the Carers' Allowance for a whole week!    Times have changed, of course, now I think it's just about  one quarter!  :-\ :'(

(Edit: Carer's Allowance now is 62.10 per week  - for a minimum of 35 hours care - but in many cases for 168 hours  care per week.)

Well flowered plant, Gerd.

Nothing exciting flowering here but I picked up a few attractive primroses in Dobbies earlier this week. 
Most of those for sale had oversized flowers in garish colours but one bench had plants with smaller flowers and paler colours.  I picked four which caught my eye.

very nice ruweiss

Roma the third one down is my favorite - just love those blues - saw a very strange red/yellow the other day - the red was in a thick band round the edge of the petal - left my phone in the car.......
