Superb Cyclamen


Crocus has an excellent choice of these plants and I bought 4 different varieties of Cyclamen for my planter to flower across the seasons. I have been delighted with all 4 of these healthy specimens.

A little beauty to brighten your day


This really is a beauty - very reliable and flowers for a considerable time. Likes a shady spot. I grow it in an old sink in a gritty, rich compost.




Every time I get a plant drom crocus im not disappointed.

Dicentra I have two beautiful, huge Dicentras - one white, one pink - next to each other in a border. The problem is that they kill everything that I plant near them, just because of their size. By this time of year, now that they have both died back, I have a big empty patch in the border. Can you suggest anything that will not mind being climbed all over in the summer and that will be coming into its own at this time of year?
