Re: new purchases/cyclamen

I have C. hed. north side of  brick steps/wall happily multiplying. C. coum
in same location, sitting ing the pots they came in last Feb. Thought they
had died, but there they are again, so will plant them out under my row of
pines. The nursery I bought them from says they may sulk after
transplanting. The leaves of both disappear for weeks here. The first year I
thought the C. hed. had died, but blooms showed up late summer, then leaves
all winter. Go for it, you will love them.

stays. I've been hearing a new "song" in the mornings & wondered who it was.
