Plant expert Jeff Turner plants hardy Cyclamen in a damp, shady border location offering great advice and tips.

Cyclamen are an excellent hardy addition to the garden, often flowering in periods of the season when there is little other source of colour elsewhere from other plants. They are ideal for shady locations as demonstrated by Jeff, meaning they will thrive in areas other plants will struggle in and add life to otherwise bare areas of your garden. In addition to pretty, characteristically upswept reflexed flowers, their foliage can also be very attractive.

We offer a great variety of Cyclamen which can be found amongst our miscellaneous bulbs, or as listed below. Donít worry if they donít flower in the first year, follow Jeffís advice and your work will pay off with an ever increasing, low maintenance display if these Cyclamen are left to naturalise.
