These were under the bench, uncovered. Half the cyclamen I have is hardy, and the other half are a little more tender and would prefer it not below zero but they all seemed ok in the tunnel. I wasn’t sure if I should have fleeced the tender ones but they all seem ok, esp this one which has been flowering all week
@richard.spicer.7906 ..... Morning Richard ...... This is beautiful ...... I left my miniature Cyclamen out all Winter, and they have survived and are in flower (just about) Looks like it's going to get a lot milder this week ..... Stay safe and well.
Thank you Janet 😊 I’m building up a nice cyclamen collection now. The polytunnel is turning more into a semi alpine tunnel! Hoping to get a greenhouse later this year as a permanent home for lots of them @janetandjim
Another cyclamen foliage variation. Still quite a young plant but it’s quite different to others I’d seen so picked it up whilst visiting Ashwoods before Christmas. Cyclamen alpinum is not as hardy as other cyclamen, and doesn’t like much water during the summer so this will be kept under protection so I can monitor the watering and temp. I think it flowers between now and April after foliage has appeared, so hoping I’ll see some signs of buds soon.
