Thanks for the salvia Verdun. We saw that one when we went to CUBG. I've been trying to remember the name

How hardy do you think it is? I can only offer cold GH protection

I have some cyclemen bulbs will they grow now? :)

The less time they spend out of the ground the better. Drying them and selling in bags is good for shops but not for the corms.  They should be in leaf now, not shrivelled up in a bag. Cyclamen hederifolium has a few flowers left and is coming into leaf. C. coum is in leaf and will flower in winter.

There are many other species but you're unlikely to find them in a non-specialist outlet

Hard to say daisy. If they've dried out they may not. 

Nothing to lose. Plant them and see.

Spuds with everything for dinner until they're all gone NB

anyone got any good recipes?

I like them sliced in layers with onions and any other veg you fancy. Add a bit of stock and put in the oven til soft. You can speed it up by starting them in the microwave.
