Fresh seed with full germination instructions on my YouTube channel. Caution!  very addictive hobby. Cyclamen coum are not the ones you will find in the florist. Flowering over the winter they bring a bit of colour to the garden in the dark months. Although small plants they can look really stunning in large areas under trees with kidney shaped silver leaves. Once established they spread by self seeding. The leaves die back to the corm for the summer, coming from around the Mediterranean they exploit the cooler months to flower and breed. Coum and hederfolium varieties, although flowering at different times of the year, do not do well planted together with one always overpowering the other. If you are growing both put a good metre between patches. We grow all ours from seed and bring them on in pots outside. The pictures show them in flower and also at the nursery stage.
