The Garden

A Treasure Trove of Cyclamen Seeds

– Cyclamen seed pods –

I found a discovery in our garden yesterday, in the place where our cyclamen grow every year.  The flowers and leaves of the plant have died down to leave the seed pods attached to the ground by a spring-like stem.  As these pods ripen, they open up to reveal lots of tiny, slightly sticky, cyclamen seeds.

I have taken some of the most ripened ones and put them in an envelope, ready to pot up and grow in time for planting early next year.  The aim is to create a bank of white cyclamen along the hedge line of one side of the garden. Fingers crossed that my new seeds actually germinate!
