 The Magic of Cyclamen 
2014 Cyclamen Sales
 

All cyclamen are raised from seed here and are at least 3 years post-germination; most are flowering size, if not they are priced accordingly. Seed parents are all excellent forms and representative of their species or named selections; seedlings are true to name. Unless otherwise mentioned, all cyclamen prefer conditions which are moist in the fall, winter & especially spring but drier in the summer when dormant.  Perfect drainage is required at all times.  Shade, such as that provided by the woodland edge or a large deciduous shrub, is ideal in most cases.  More detailed descriptions of the species, cultivars and cultivation requirements can be found in my article The Magic of Cyclamen. Photos can be found in the Cyclamen section of the Plants Photographs or by clicking on the species names in the listing. 'Hardy' means reliable in this garden at temperatures down to at least 5F with or without snow cover.  The leaves of several species that are wintergreen will benefit from protection from morning sun.  Plants will be shipped ex pots and partially bare-root during late April or late July/early August when dormant - the best time to reestablish them as they come back into root and shoot growth. 

Please inquire for wholesale prices for Cyclamen hederifolium, coum, confusum and mirabile which can be shipped in pots (multiples of 32 pots/tray).

Please e-mail orders and inquiries to info@edgewoodgardens.net.
