How did that happen


Here is a picture of a mass of cyclamen coum growing in next doors garden. They are in an inch layer of shingle above a weed suppressent mat. My neighbour has never grown a cyclamen, on purpose, in her life. These have all seeded from my garden, where my coum, supposedly grown in ideal conditions, put on nothing like the show these self seeders do. I even had to stop her pulling them up last year as she thought they were weeds. She has talked of moving, if she does I shall be over there reclaiming some of these cyclamen!

I should think she ought to let you go round NOW to get some! That's amazing. Have you seen the price of one pot of them at the GCs?
