I took a small un-rooted offset from
Maggan's border auricula Exhibition mix in May, it has successfully rooted and
has started to bloom. Autumn blooms are rarely as good as the spring ones , but
it’s nice to see it blooming. Below is a picture of Maggan’smain plant.
I've refreshed one of my auricula borders, included amongst the mixed border auriculas are some Osbourne Green and RP36. These auriculas stay out the whole year and have no problem with minus teperatures down to minus 27 C.
