CYCLAMEN - Cyclamen

In our garden the Cyclamens always receive a lot of attention from visitors. Cyclamen do naturalise, only slowly. They’re best when planted in a fairly light area (sun/part shade). At the moment we have two sorts of Cyclamen in our assortment: spring-flowering cyclamens, and autumn-flowering Cyclamens.

Plant Cyclamen about three centimetres deep. Place the corm slanting in the planting hole so that water can easily drain off. Cyclamen prefer a chalky, loamy soil that is well-drained. When planting always improve the soil by mixing in some leafmould or compost, as well as clay minerals. Give Cyclamens a yearly dose of lime.
