|Primula pubescens - Wedgewood -|
I exchanged auriculas with a collector in Germany a couple of years ago, among those that I received in return were two Primula pubescens and they are now blooming for the first time for me.
Exchanging auriculas is a good way of adding to your collection, if anyone wishes to exchange with me, please contact me /Ray

A toad has made it's winter home in one of my auricula cold frames, he is very welcome there and I try not to disturb him to much. You can see that he has dug himself into the gravel that I put into the cold frames so that my auriculas in pots are well drained when placed in the cold frames for the winter.

Our local badger has been visiting the auricula borders again in search of worms and other insects. The light auricula soil makes it ideal hunting ground for the badgers. Although I must admit I'm getting tired of constanly replanting my auriculas. The chicken wire did not help this year as they have now learnt to go under it. The good thing is that they do little damage to the auriculas. /Ray
