Planting Indoor Cyclamen outside

Fleur, a Cedar Hill Fairy The blossoms of the Cyclamen twist and turn like tiny butterfly wings.

Growing Cyclamen as House Plants

The most important criteria for success with growing a Cyclamen are
cool temperatures, fresh air, and ample moisture.

Cyclamen will rarely succeed if the temperature goes above sixty-five degrees during the day and fifty degrees at night. Cyclamen said should be watered daily to keep the soil moist.
Because they prefer a humid atmosphere, misting is beneficial.A Cyclamen Plant Blooming in the Garden ut of drafts!.

Dormant Period for Cyclamen

Your Cyclamen will continue to bloom from December up until April if it is kept cool and happy. As the flower stalks and leaves die off they should be removed by giving them a sharp tug. New foliage and flowers will soon replace the old.
The corm of the Cyclamen plant will naturally go into dormancy sometime after April. At that time, gradually reduce the water and keep the plant in a cool, darker place.
Red, Pink and White Cyclamens Blooming at the Nursery Allow the corm to slowly dry out. Replant it in a shaded area of the garden in the spring.
In the garden, Cyclamen should be planted with half of the corm just below the soil surface.
In late July or August, when the tiny new leaves begin to develop, transplant it into a pot using a rich sandy potting soil but leave it outdoors.
Keep the bed on which the pot stands moist. In early fall the potted corm can be again moved into the house, where it should be kept in a window where it will receive a few hours of morning sun each day.
Potted Cyclamen should be fed monthly with a diluted have strength liquid house plant fertilizer.

Propagating Cyclamen Plants

Cyclamen can be grown from seed, but it takes up to eighteen months before you will see your first flowers. You may be better off to purchase your plant from a nursery if you tend to be an impatient gardener.

Growing Hardy Cyclamens in the Garden

Hardy Cyclamen should be planted in a semi shady area of the garden in August or September.
The corms should be planted 2 in. deep and 6 in. apart in a slightly alkaline soil,
with a generous amount of leaf mold added.
Different varieties of hardy Cyclamen may root from either the bottom or top of the corm.
Be certain to plant the appropriate side up!

Do you plan on planting flowers too?

If you are going to have an organic vegetable garden, it's still a good idea to plant some flowers. They will help attract beneficial insects and birds, which helps with pollination and keeping away bad bugs. I would save a couple of vases (different sizes), so that you can enjoy your flowers indoors too. I pretty much keep a vase of flowers in the house all summer. It makes me happy, and I don't have to deadhead as much :) Even something as simple as a single dahlia in a bud vase can be quite pretty. I use extra jars for flowers that I share (with neighbors, kid's teachers, grandparents etc)

Now is a good time for planting marigold seeds

You'll get flowers sooner if you plant the seeds in sixpacks & keep on a sunny windowsill indoors, they'll sprout in a few weeks. You can move them directly to the garden in April/May. Another advantage of this technique is that you'll get them big enough that they likely won't be lost to the snails.
But you can also just plant seeds in the garden now. They'll sprout when the soil warms, they'll be a little slower on the uptake this spring to produce flowers, but otherwise will & do just fine. You'll have to take precautions against snails if you do it this way. Some varieties of marigolds are thought of as gormet treats by snails
