Primula Auricula

I keep mine in pots sheltered from the rain as they don't like water on their leaves image

    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! image

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
  • 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.

    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 lovelyimage

    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 prettyimage

     I make a makeshift "theatre" out of bricks - shown here with the polyanthus instead

    Worth taking a look at the Auricula and Primula Society pages.
