Not at first Chris, most autumn flowering cyclamen species send out their flowers first, then the foliage comes later. Quite different to the spring flowering species, and the florist cyclamen hybrids 🌸 @midnightgardener

@Richard.spicer.7906 .... Morning Richard ...... Beautiful delicate little flowers ...... To answer your question in a previous post, my Plumbago is still surviving, although is looking a bit sad at the moment, with no flowers ....... preparing for its Winter pruning ...... Glad to know that the jobs are going well .... best regards to you and lovely St Albans .

Good to hear you are well John, and yep I think the plumbago is probably just getting ready for winter. Hope Brighton is looking lovely at the moment, it’s been a while since I’ve been down to the sea front @johninbrighton

A Cyclamen from Turkey - Cyclamen intaminatum - this one has already flowered in September, but I didn’t get a photo unfortunately

Can you take cuttings off cyclamen. If so do you know how. As they have a bulb. Well mine do anyway. Thanks

Hi Jayne @bag - unfortunately you can’t propagate Cyclamen via cuttings. They have a tuber, and although it is feasible to divide the tuber into smaller pieces with a knife to grow on as individual plants, this is quite difficult as you have to prevent the cut pieces from getting mouldy or rotting off. It is much easier to propagate cyclamen from seed although it can take a few years for each seedling to reach flowering size. Seed can be collected from existing plants and sown straight away.
