Are these Cyclamen coum, or the less hardy mini cyclamen sold as winter bedding?
I think they are cyclamen coum? Hope photo is OK...
This is cyclamen coum https://apps.rhs.org.uk/advicesearch/profile.aspx?PID=589
Yours look more like Cyclamen persicum which are used as colourful early winter bedding - they're not usually winter hardy but we've not really had any frosts so lots have survived through to spring. I'd leave them to die down where they are and they'll flower again next early winter - if we have a cold winter you'll probably lose them then.
I always forget the species name of these. They'll be perennial but not completely hardy. Not coum
As a follow on from this thread I have had several indoor cyclamen which have now finished flowering and I have planted them outside in the hope that they will grow on. Has anyone else tried this in the past and been successful?
