Westcountry Nurseries offers a range of Cyclamen such as Cyclamen coum, Cyclamen hederifolium and Cyclamen persicum for under trees, damp woodland areas and display pots. Will even grow on chalky alkaline soils.
Primulaceae hederifolium flowering from September and coum from January. Not only are the flowers exquisite but so are the patterns on the foliage.
The hardy species of cyclamen offered are easy to grow. Will also grow on alkaline soils.
Ideally, cyclamen like a lightly shaded position, well drained with lots of shredded leaf mould. The site chosen needs to remain moist during the autumn and late spring. Commonly, gardeners plant them at the base of trees and shrubs, north-facing walls or in stone troughs and rock gardens. Some people grow them on their windowsills to enjoy close up the delicate nature of these plants.
PLEASE NOTE ANY BULBS WHICH HAVE FLOWERED WILL BE SENT OUT DORMANT (USUALLY FROM MID JUNE). DO NOT ORDER UNLESS YOU ARE HAPPY WITH THIS.
