Some episodes of Gardener’s World leave me drooling more than others…
and yesterday’s left my bib simply dripping.
Twas a feature on Auriculas …. sigh.
Some of these Auriculas are flowering in the Tidy Garden as I scribe, others are archive images from previous years ‘flowerings’. I shall look out for these over the coming weeks.
I have no idea what varieties I have as they came in a magazine offer many years ago, but I LOVE them.
Along with Heucheras and Calendulas, these are my fav’ plants EVER (said in a trendy teenage tone).
I don’t have a theatre in which to display them (on Mr TG’s to-do list), mine are either in the flower beds, in pots with other plants or in hanging baskets…..yes…I know….random.
They’ve been in these baskets for years, I’ve changed the soil a few times just to re-bury the stems & they’ve been fabulously happy & content.
They’ve taken a battering over the years too, plenty of wind, more than their fair share of rain & heaps of snow but they’ve always bounced back.
That said, I think I’ll split them again & pot some up in posh terracotta pots & shimmy Mr TG along with that theatre.
I’m trying to grow some from seed at the mo’ (from T&M)….progress is slow (yawn) but we gardeners are a patient lot.
If anyone is able to shed some light on the names of any of these varieties I’d be humongously grateful…..Thank you!
