These suddenly appeared under my Magnolia! They have had a hard life after I grew them from seed, I didn’t expect any of them to survive being trampled on by carpenters, but here they are, and I am very happy! The cyclamen leaves in the background are from a different, non-hardy variety that still manage to survive winters here - most of the time, in a sheltered spot.
@gjones, remember me complaining about my cyclamen seeds failing? Just a few days later, things started to happen in the tray I had given up on. Now there are 9 tiny leaves showing, and I find myself checking on them several times a day! I usually struggle at this stage with the balance of enough/too much water, so there is no guarantee all 9 will live, but I am so excited!!! @richer.spicer.7906 I remember you had your cyclamen seeds in a cupboard, how did it go?
They're gorgeous- my cutting didn't make it! Make sure you post progress photos. I originally bought ours when they had no flowers as I love the foliage on these plants. When they bloomed, it was a real bonus!😊
I agree about the foilage, @gjones. In time, I am aiming for a carpet under some trees😁 This GC is independent and probably doing what they can to set themselves apart from the chains. They also make their own plants. I try to support them whenever I can.
I can already see them under a nice tree those r so pretty and the foliage nice flowers. I agree with@gjones nothing like pics of progress I try to do it when I remember but we sort of have some. I was looking at my first pic of my palm tree in spring and at it now... Wow it's really grown. But flowerbeds and all are great having our journeys all in GT and advice plus wishlist I love this site🤣😂🤣🤗👍🏻👏👏😊💕
