I keep mine in pots sheltered from the rain as they don't like water on their leaves
If you want to expand the number of types you have, possibly the widest range available are at Woottens plants - use the plant finder under P, pages 7 to 16. I was amazed that there were so many!
I keep mine (burgundy with yellow centres, no idea which variety they are) in small glazed pots near a very large variegated pittosporum outside all year round. They flower every year no problem. I don't see any in garden centres near me unfortunately, to add to them.
This is where I grow mine, in Summer. In winter they are moved to the cold greenhouse.
Thank you Susan
Ooooh Berghill I've been trying to persuade my Father to build me an 'Auricula Theatre' like that for the past few months lol
I grow them in flower beds in a gritty soil , also the old clay pots ,I don't have any problems with either.
No problems, it is on a South east facing wall. Do have a shade netting if the sun ever shines too much though.
Oooo Berghill - thats lovely
I have 5 that i bought as plugs last year - they have been out all summer, but I have just moved them in to a cold GH for the winter. Only had one flowered so far, so hoping the others are as pretty
I make a makeshift "theatre" out of bricks - shown here with the polyanthus instead
These are some of the ones from the Theatre
Love them all - but middle one is particularly delish
Worth taking a look at the Auricula and Primula Society pages.
