Cyclamen graecum will not survive outside here in N. E. Scotland and under cold glass it is not happy - it seems to really demand frost free conditions in most of the UK so I can sympathise with Diane W's difficulties with the species.
Happily we have had no such problems with the delightfully robust C. hederifolium. We were bequeathed a fifty year old C. hederifolium tuber which had lived under a heather bed all its life and was around 56cm in circumference when we moved it to our garden. It flowered for another twenty years before we foolishly tried to move it again. What a mistake to make - we felt awful - plant murderers! M. Y.
