Cyclamen

I have some cyclamen corms which I've just removed from pots. How should I store them for next year, or should I just plant them into the garden?

    We plant them into the garden in the cyclamen area. Most come back the next year but the ones that are a lovely red don't.

    I would plant them out - assuming they're the hardy ones you have  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....



    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    If they are Cyclamen persicum (florists cyclamen) which have the large brightly coloured flowers and are usually grown indoors, then keep them in their pots (or re-pot) somewhere cool and out of the sun and don't water them until you see new shoots appearing in about September, at which point start watering them again.  They'll probably be in flower for Christmas.  That type won't (usually) survive a winter outside in the UK.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
