Buy Cyclamen coum sowbread or cyclamen bulbs (corms): Late winter-flowering cyclamen

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: moderately fertile, humus-rich, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: December to March
  • Hardiness: fully hardy
  • Bulb size: 8/10

    Delicate pink flowers with upswept petals appear in winter or early spring above rounded, silvery-green leaves. These diminutive cyclamen are perfect for naturalising around the base of deciduous trees and shrubs. Best in humus-rich, well-drained soil in partial shade, they make excellent companions for ferns and other shade-loving plants.

  • Garden care: Plant tubers with the rounded (usually smooth) side down, shallowly in humus-rich, fertile soil. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted leaf mould around the crown of the plants in spring as the foliage starts to die back.

  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs

Hi there, am I too late to plant these now (this coming week, 6th Nov)? Am in London so not so cold. And will they flower this winter-spring or would it not be until next year? thanks so much in advance.


Hello, No, it is getting late in the season, but it's definitely not too late to plant these corms.


When do you plant these bulbs?


Hello there These are planted in the autumn, so any time from now. Hope this helps


Creating a Winter Garden Dear Crocus I am wanting to create a " winter garden " area and fancy an Acer griseum as the central feature. I had thought of planting a Cornus Midwinter Fire and Bergenia 'Bressingham Ruby' to complement the scheme but I would welcome any other suggestions please. Many thanks Claire


Hello Claire, If you click on the following link it will take you to all our winter flowering plants. I would definitely recommend hellebores and snowdrops, perhaps some Cyclamen and and Euonymus fortunei for foliage colour. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor
