Top of the Ladder

It’s been a brilliant year for the Auricula. Out of approx 150 plants, not all different , I think 80% have flowered.

One of three Auricula ladders. The fun starts when I replace all of these with Pelargonium for the summer.

  1. I love this display Sue, all beautiful!

    They are all so beautiful! I will start growing some next year.


  3. Auriculas are like a paint box of colours, aren’t they? I have about 30 plants – mostly un-named borders (I give them names so I know which are which when they’re not in flower).
    Looking forward to seeing the Pellies!


    • Thank you Celia..I also name some of mine as quite a lot are my seedlings, my granddaughters like naming them too but we end up with silly names which is quite cute really…


  4. I adore auriculas, what a fabulous collection you have. I am going to look out for an old step ladder, they make a wonderful Auricula ‘theatre.’


    • They do, and the ladder in the picture is a victorian one that was being thrown out at my son in laws place of work. He knows me well. Sadly this ladder is now beginning to rot badly but I am always on the look out for replacements.


  5. lovely plants and a wonderful display 🙂


  6. Lovely idea for vertical gardening!


  7. I lone Auriculas and your display is stunning


  8. I’m a little late but just wanted to say that’s quite a fantastic display! Beautiful colors and they look very happy and well grown.
    I have a few seedlings coming along but have absolutely no faith in them making it through the heat and humidity of our summer…
