In Holland, we know them as 'soldaatjes', little soldiers. May be English redcoats?

Potting on Cyclamen

Posted: 10/06/2014 at 16:21

I have a few Cyclamen (hederifolium, purpurascens and coum)  growing in pots. I would like to pot them on, but some have still got leaves on them. Can I pot them on while they are not fully dormant???

Canna virus?

Can anybody see if this plant is infected by a virus? I know cannas are very susceptible for virusses and I'm afraid I may loose this plant... It's a variety called 'Robert Kemp', wich is not variegated.

What can i plant

Sedums and other succulents do well on thin soil. Bearded irises may work as well.

You can use it for seeds, if you mix it with sand (50/50).
