28th January 2013
HERE we go again, and in 2013 we'll be offering an even wider range of auriculas than ever before, with plenty of new ones in the pipeline. Our online catalogue listing available plants is updated every week as plants sell out and others become big enough to leave home. We are constantly adding to our Plant Heritage National Collections, and steadily able to share more of the off-spring to pay for their keep!
OUR latest printed catalogue - which also includes cultivation advice - is now available. If you would like one please send £2.50 to Pop's Plants, Pop's Cottage, Barford Lane, Downton, Salisbury, Wiltshire SP5 3PZ.
THANKS to everyone who attended and helped at this year's open weekend. The weather was marginally better than last year.....but pretty chilly. We made £436.00 for the Trussell Trust. One of the highlights was the gift of a fine chocolate cake decorated beautifully with pots of edible auriculas. Thank you all very much.
WE have been fortunate to be featured in a number of publications recently including Garden News, the Telegraph, Saga magazine and the RHS's The Garden. Our plants also graced the auricula theatre at the New York Botanical Gardens, and once again the stage in the lovely period gardens of London's Geffrye Museum. Our auriculas certainly get around the world, as well as to many parts of Europe. We send regularly to the USA, Japan and the Falkland Islands. It's really encouraging to see auriculas becoming established in some pretty hostile environments!
THIS page is the place to find details of our forthcoming shows, talks and workshops. Next will be a visit to the lovely RHS Rosemoor Garden on Sunday, May 12th, where we will be giving a couple of talks at 1130 and 1430.
YOU can see stunning pictures of auriculas and other primulas exhibited around the UK by members of the National Auricula and Primula Society on the websites of the three sections. There are links from www.southernauriculaprimula.org This year's shows are almost over, but you can still enjoy the photographs.
WE still have some signed first editions of Allan Guest's beautiful book 'THE AURICULA - A HISTORY, CULTIVATION AND VARIETIES'. The price is £19.95 including shipping in the UK. Ideal for a gift....
