Auriculas at Kew

IMG_4311

Auriculas on sale at Kew Gardens – not in their little plant centre but right by the exit. How Fiendish! I don’t think they have had them in stock for a couple of years and if I remember rightly, they were selling them last with Victorian terracotta pots, at £10 or more. Now they are just £7 and members get a 10% discount. Bargain!

IMG_4270IMG_4271Their names below, a bit of a jumble in this format, though I think one was missing a label so may have to call in to give that one a name. I’ve potted them up in my own little terracotta pots and must think of creating a permanent home for them. Obviously I have labelled them individually in their respective pots!
