From Haugesund. With 3 children and a husband who's seemingly constantly away on business, I garden like it could save my life - and it probably does!

After embarrassigly many near-death experiences, eventually resulting in being dumped into one of my raised borders, my cyclamen #fromseed are proving to be far more resilient than I thought.

#progress #cyclamen #fromseed We're now up to at least 19 little seedlings!!! The instructions say to leave them until they go dormant the second season. I might have to sit on my hands.

@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?

Yay! @christineb my track record with seeds isn't great, so I really do feel I have pulled off something quite extraordinary... 😎

Well you'll definitely have to keep us updated now! Wish you lots of success. When you said you check on them every couple of hours, I had to laugh because thats exactly what I do😂😂

Apparently it helps to complain, because look what I found @gjones !!! The friendly local GC owner even promised to order the coum variety for me as well! 😄😄😄

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've requested the GC's to bring in new plants or specifically plants I'm interested in but so far to no avail☹️. You must have more influence than we do!😊

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🤣😂🤣🤗👍🏻👏👏😊💕
