Soon Be Winter


I have a collection of small Cyclamen, which I find very reliable, They spend the summer outside under cover, then early August, I clean off the old roots and tidy the tops.

Then I repot in the same pot, wait until they show signs of growth, then water gradually.

This one is a pink one, which I had in 2003, I know this as I keep a yearly record. The older ones seem to keep better, maybe because they don’t dry out as much, or perhaps they are not bred to last.

These are the ones you have indoors, they usually start flowering early December.
