Here's a few images from the Early Primula show 2024

It was great to welcome new members on the 9th March. Thanks Roger Norgate for sending in these delightful images.

See the winning exhibits in our latest gallery.

Looking forward to the start of the 2024 Show season

Let's hope Spring gets a grip and banishes this dreadful weather away! Kay Overton, our Society President is looking forward to Early Primula Show on the 9th March. It will be an opportunity for Kay to display a seedling from the premier winning, 'Que Sera'. According to Colin Humphreys Que Sera, was a worthy winner! Let's hope the lovely lemon polyanthus bring Kay some cheer. We hope you agree!

Sad news

It is with great sadness that we share with you the news of the deaths of two of our valued members and expert growers. Keith Poulton died towards the end of last year. Keith was a long-time committee member of NAPS Southern and also a past President. He was a keen and successful exhibitor and Show Superintendent. Keith was particularly interested in encouraging new exhibitors and donated The Poulton Cup which is awarded at the Primula
Show for the most points in the novice classes. 
Earlier this year, we also lost Jan Cheeseman. Jan was until very recently a regular at our Shows at Great Bookham with her husband Les. She was an excellent grower and exhibitor and always left our Shows with a good selection of our trophies reflecting her long dedication to growing high quality plants. Jan’s knowledge was extensive, and we valued her as a respected judge.

Tributes to Keithand Jan will feature in our 2024 year book.

The return of the March Early Primula Show in 2024 

We are delighted to announce that we are going to re-instate the March Early Primula show 9th March 2024 on a trial basis. If it is a success then we will look to add it again to our regular calendar. 

Let's start repotting!

After repotting Auriculas often have a second flush of flowers, not always as strong as the ones earlier in this year but a welcome bit of colour. Leaf guards can be clearly seen in these photos. These protect the flowers when they are developing.

First show of 2023! 8th April 2023 53rd PRIMULA SHOW

For those who follow eBay, you can tell there is Primula Auricula fever in the air with a Northern Blue selling for £113 the other day! Fingers crossed, our members will bring along a few bargains to help spread the Primula love and share their expertise!! 
Meanwhile, here's a few plants out in flower from Society members. Looking forward to see you all in Bookham!
