It’s amazing how many flowers come from one tiny tuber! #cyclamen #cyclamen-alpinum #cyclamenalpinum

First flowers I’ve ever seen on this Cyclamen since I bought it. And there are lots 😲 it’s only a small tuber, I only had one or two last year #cyclamen #cyclamen-alpinum #cyclamenalpinum

@pelly 😁 hopefully will get some seed, I think I promised you last year I’d save some on one of the cyclamen but I didn’t get much in the end. More flowers this year so hopefully better chance 👍🏼

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.
