CYCLAMEN

These are the wild relatives of the well known pot plant. They flower from autumn to spring and like a dry summer so are siutable for humus rich soil under trees. They are best transplanted in growth. All require a well drained soil and a dry summer dormancy. They prefer to be planted as:      

Cold Glass   — africanum, balearicum, creticum, cyprium, graecum, intaminatum, libanoticum, mirabile, persicum, pseudibericum and rohlfsianum.

Shade            — hederifolium, coum, repandum.

Semi-shade  — purpurascens, cilicium, intaminatum.

We post most cyclamen in Feb-April but C hederifolium & C coum can be posted in August.
