Indoor Gradening


I love my little Cyclamen, I have about 12 this year, the oldest are 8 years old, and I cannot resist a couple of new ones each year, I water them each Sunday, a day I find easier to remember

I cannot resist just a small taste of the outside world, even a few sprays from the garden are so refreshing to see.

So for now it is Indoor Gradening, until I can begin seed sowing.

The cyclamens are lovely....but what am I doing wrong? I try to keep a few in my porch, but they just die on me. Can you give any tips?

Only not to over water, I put about half an inch of water in each of the white pots, sometimes more than once a week if the sun has been out, no fear of that this week.

So Beauitful Lb I have 1 in my front vestibule which is cool.

Thanks for the good tip on how to care for them.

They are all lovely and look nice being all together.

Cyclamens seem to like our rather 'cool' house - cool as in cold I mean! They don't like sitting in water at all do they, resulting in yellowing of the leaves?

I wrote a poem once called 'My Sickly Cyclamen' but you will all be relieved to know that I have now lost it!

I like your Cyclamens. That's a plant I've never had any success with.
I always bring sprigs of Forsythia in aswell. It brightens the place up doesn't it :o)

They are gorgeous but I don`t have them as its fatal to bring them here, I cannot grow them, that also goes for the ones in the garden, I`ve tried many times without success, I like to add Forsythia to a vase of Daffs........

Cyclamen are lovely and yours look so nice and healthy. I love little flower arrangements - they often have the edge over the big showy ones I think.
