Auriculas at Hampton Court PalaceThe Palace garden now has its own auricula theatre, and Pops Plants were delighted to be asked to advise and 'dress' this elegant new structure, situated to one side of the famous Great Vine.
It seems that an old map had detailed an 'auricula garden' in the area where the theatre is now sited. With the help of members of the National Auricula and Primula Society (Southern) we were able to stage more than eighty auriculas from our Plant Heritage National Collections, with a few spares to try to extend the flowering period.
When the auricula season is finished the theatre will be used as a 'blooming stage' to display other garden treasures.
