Took the i pad out just now. I'm surprised at what is going on out there on this wet, stormy day. Outside the Daphne is putting on one hell of a display, so are the Hellebores, including a small, frilled farmyard hybrid. In the greenhouses brilliant colour from the Cyclamen, a Gymea lily seedling I have just tidied up. This is a gigantic plant from New South Wales, no idea how I will deal with it. Even the Australian cycads have done well (Macrozamia communis), unheated.
The cyclamen are wild sourced, I think, and the larger ones here labelled as repandum, I think are pseudoibericum, the smaller ones coum, too small to be lost in the garden really. This shows that Cyclamen are just as good as foliage plants as they are as flowering plants, demonstrating diversity and great detail in leaf patterns. They are hardy, but detest Welsh wet winters, though I have C. africanum outside unprotected, which I was recently told I shouldn't have.
