That is very encouraging news. You are the second individual from =the northern part of Michigan to write. More and more it is confirming =my original suspicion ... it is how I hold my mouth when transplanting. =Will go for the coum come this spring... both seeds and plants while =dormant.
Seven inches of snow on the ground here with a base of frozen slush. =Night time temps dropped to 3 degrees night before last. I do believe we =are going to have a winter this year. Fall was colder than normal and =early this year.

Gene, I've been growing Cyclamen coum and C. hederifolium in northern =Michigan for about 5 years. This is the first year I've found any =seedlings, but that may have to do with the new irrigation equipment. =The corms on the C. hederifolium have gottn enormous -- about 3 to 4 =inches in diameter! I should qualify this information by stating that =because we live on the shores of Lake Michigan, we do enjoy a unique =microclimate.
