CYCLAMEN

These species cyclamen are the attractive parents of the well known indoor plants . Most are hardy and are ideal for growing in a humus-rich soil that is well drained under trees or shrubs where many will spread to form a carpet of colour. . Non hardy species make easy pot plants for a cold glasshouse. All are summer dormant and have distinctive leaves which are very variable and give great interest, both before and after the flowers appear. They should be planted with the tops of the tubers one inch below the soil surface. The tubers do not divide and all  must be grown from seed which takes 4-5 years to reach flowering size.
