The arrival of Cyclamen heralds the transition of the garden into cooler days and earlier evenings, so what better time to brighten up entrances and remind us that it's time to start planting up window boxes and pots for autumn and winter colour.
Following extensive trialling in the UK, the Metis series of Cyclamen persicum have been bred to perform well in both the garden and containers. With an extensive colour range, these vigorous gems have good resistance to disease and last well outdoors, seeming to shrug off inclement weather.
These plants can be grown indoors or outside, in planters and window boxes. They are partially hardy to -3°C so are great outdoors and will flower from now well past Christmas indoors and out.
Rooted plants are far more reliable and quicker to establish than the dried tubers often found in shops so are an ideal way to reliably fill your garden with an explosion of winter colour.
A mixture of colours, Metis produces an abundance of gorgeous miniature flowers in shades of pink, salmon, white and red. These are carried above waxy foliage which is often marbled in silvery tones and brings illumination to shady areas.
You’ll get 6 established plants in a mix of colours*, all in 10.5cm pots, ready to display. They’ll arrive to you nursery fresh, already in flower and covered in buds, and will give you masses of flowers per plant at any one time. Easy and reliable, they’ll give colour for at least six to eight weeks in a cool house.
