Talkback: How to sow cyclamen seeds

Posted: 11/05/2012 at 18:03

i sowed seeds form teh neopolitan cyclamen.. i kept balls of seeds until dry and had burst in a paper bag.. i then sowed them in compost and left under a bush for shelter and kept them moist.. i now have 35 small ones.

i always think when sowing seeds that the best time is when the plant itself has finished its flowering and seeded itself.. as that is when they naturally seed.

@woo2.. that is such a shame.. it is heartbreaking when it gets destroyed lost the roof to mine last winter.. lost everything inside as hubby woudnt go out and mend it for me

@lillyloiuse.. you are so lucky all those greenhouses.. wish i had space for me.. well i have but hubby wants it for large veg patch. i have to be honest and say i put all my cosmos and rudbeckia etc outside at weekend.. as the green housee floor was also impassable really.. and i am just so fed up with not being able to put them out... potted up the osteospurnums yesterday as raining and couldnt get outisde and they needed it.

@dean.. i am very green with envy at your polytunnels.. the are coming on a treat.. kep the pictures coming.

@joslow.. thats ok.. happy to share.. they should stock it. that one in picture is about 4 years old now and gets biger every eyar.. will add picutre of it this year when flowering... when it has jus cut it all down and it will reshoot.
