I purchased a tray of outdoor cyclamen from a top garden centre 3 weeks ago. I planted them out on fresh compost and in clean pots with clean terracotta pot pieces used as drainage in the bottom of each pot. About a week later I checked the pots and most of them have these tiny but very vigorous growing green shoots with leaves on the top. I have no idea what they are do I got back in touch with the garden centre and they said it is sunflower seeds. I do not accept this as I simply don't believe they are. These shoots seem to be very aggressively spreading and are overwhelming the plant in its pot.
