Cyclamen

On looking at the photo I'm not sure that's hederifolium. 


Did it have leaves in July?


Just picked up your last post, purpurescens, yes, I'd forgotten that one. I don't think that has a dormant period, or not much of one

Cyclamen

C. hederifloium are sometimes called autumn cyclamen but mine are always flowering by July, and mostly continue right through til late November. Flowers before foliage as Fairy says. I haven't got much foliage yet. Hederifolium means like ivy, that's what the leaves look like, (some more than others)


C. coum has flowers and leaves at the same time, a much rounder leaf, flowers around the new year or later depending on weather.


There are lots more species but those are the two most common hardy ones.

too hot?

It would seem that Honesty is likely to be overrunning my garden next year - I have the purple flowered seeds - do either of you have the white flower 


Pretty sure I have GD. Well, I know I have, but didn't mark any up so only think I have collected seeds from a variegated white one. The seedlings are variegated at the first or second true leaves so can be discarded if I got it wrong. I hope I got it right or my colour scheme will go to pot. 


Who am I trying to kid that I have a colour scheme

Beeches Nursery at Ashdon.


I see nutcutlet got there before me.......


See original post

 I got there when the nursery wasn't much more than a table with some plants on it Ceres


A great place, I lived in the next village for a long time.


Rather a long trip now so don't get there often.

Plant identification please

Ok 


I reckon that's Buglossoides purpurocaerulea.

Plant identification please

the leaves at the front are heuchera.


That's a heuchera, the plants don't always read the book of rules
