Tyra's Garden is a small garden on the island of Resarö situated in the inner part of the archipelago near the small town Vaxholm, outside Stockholm. Tyra's Garden is mostly an ornamental vegetable garden, my potager. But flowers are of course an important ingredience, for beauty and pollination. The climate in these parts is quite demanding as the northerly winds can be strong and cold. THIS BLOG 'Tyra's Garden' is not entirely a gardenblog it contains much more. About me: Enthusiastic amateur gardener and photographer from Vaxholm, Sweden. Designed and built my Greenhouse and Potager in Tyra's Garden 2003. Love the outdoor life, gardening and sailing especially. View my profile

Cyclamen persicum - November blooms

This post "Cyclamen persicum  - November blooms" was originally uploaded by Tyra Hallsénius Lindhe in the blog Tyras Trädgård/Tyra's Garden



This is an ornamental pot-flower that is perfect for our November weather conditions. Especially this November, we still have this wonderful mild weather. I really love it. It reminds me of the winters I spent in UK; rather wet, mild and foggy. We haven’t had Jack Frost here at all! Thank you - and that is the way the Cyclamen and I like it to be until… Christmas. Although we do, of course, like it to be a white Christmas.

SKÖTSELRÅD-CYKLAMEN från Blomsterfrämjandet




Svenskt namn: Cyklamen ~ Latinskt namn: Cyclamen persicum.


Cyklamen vill ha en jämn tillförsel av vatten, ca 1/2 - 1 dl per dag. Mjukt vatten eller regnvatten är särskilt bra och allra bäst är om den får vattnet underifrån. Tillför en svag dos med näring en gång i veckan under hösten. Gör uppehåll under vintern och återuppta gödslingen i februari-mars.

Cyklamen ska stå ljust. Vid för varm placering kan växten bli lös. Den trivs utmärkt på svala platser samt inglasade balkonger och uterum. Växten klarar temperaturer ned mot 0°C.

Ta bort vissna blommor och blad med ett kraftigt ryck. Om det blir kvar en bit av stjälken längst ned vid knölen pressas växtsaft ut genom brottytan vilket ger en bra grogrund för sjukdomar.

It's a beautiful flower. Unfortunately we can't grow them here although I did see them in a flower show. I wonder how the grower managed to look after these cold climate plants.

Lovely to connect with you again, Tyra. Your garden looks beautiful.
