The sight (and fragrance) of the Cyclamen Hederifolium brings a much-needed boost to the garden, at a time when most other flowers are looking more than sorry for themselves. Each slender stem carries a carefully furled bud that unwraps into a beautiful bright pink flower with shell-shaped petals. Cyclamen Hederifolium has a long flowering period before disappearing over the summer - but not without leaving behind a pretty carpet of heart-shaped marbled leaves. 13/15cm bulbs supplied.
|Plant 3-5cm deep and at least 10 apart.
|Well drained soil

Cyclamen are perfect for naturalising if left undisturbed. Apply a leaf mulch annually to help protect from frost. Cyclamen corms can be planted at approx 5cm deep and 15cm apart, in fertile and well-drained soil. They also prefer to be located in areas that are fairly sheltered from harsh winds, like against a wall or under plants for cover.
