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!

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!

Spring 2023 is nearly here!

Thanks Kay Overton, for these delightful photos, taken in early February. Kay says they are pretty tatty - however that's to be expected at this time of year. Good luck everyone with the season ahead!  Looking forward to seeing you at the shows!

SAD NEWS October 2022

It is with great sadness that we have to announce the death of Gil Dawson formerly of Pops Plants. Gil will be greatly missed by all his friends and family, his knowledge of horticulture was beyond exceptional, he always knew the answer.
