Do you know where Auriculas originate from? Did you know there are specialist groups breeding and showing these beautiful plants that have been exhibited for more than 100 years? We follow the history and development of this fascinating group of plant from the wild to the show bench via your garden.

I have been involved with the Auricula and Primula Society here in the Midlands and West Section since the 1980's and I am a past president. During that time I have followed some of the country's top breeders and exhibitors and this talk demonstrates the lengths growers go to and the skills involved in the growing of Auriculas, it is literally 40 years of the history of their cultivation through my eyes and ears! At certain times of the year plants may be available for sale.
