Hi guys I'm struggling to find any Coum in the local nurseries/ garden centres. Can anyone recommend a good value online supplier? thanks image

    Never used them myself but a lot of forum users quote 'Crocus' as being very reliable suppliers and they do supply cyclamen Coum.  Perhaps someone on here might confirm that?

    They only seem to be supplying the corms at the moment, I was looking for some plants that are established and ready to plant out image

    I've used Eurobulbs (based in wisbech) for cyclamen plants - both coum and hederifolia have been great from themimage

    We did not inherit the earth from our grandparents.  We’re borrowing it from our children.

    Ordered 3 pink and 3 white, pretty reasonable price. First time ordering live plants online, excited for them to come now image

    Cyclamen coum are very variable in leaf and flower. I'd go to  a nursery and choose them in leaf. 

    RHS Plantfinder (this seems to have got much more complex since I last used it) will find the plant you put in a search and a supplying nursery near you.

    Nurseries are very different to garden Centres. Their business is knowing and growing plants rather than selling massed produced plants

    The closest supplier is a good 30miles away or more. I'm not too fussy on leaf shape, I'm looking to have a cyclamen flowering outside when not a lot else is about image

    p.s The nursery closed on the 28th September too. so wouldnt have had much luck anyway :P

  • Cyclamen coum in the green are sold by Crocus bad by Long Acre Plants (who sell great plants for shade). I got my hederifoliums from Long A in the green, back in September and coum normally around now-ish. I found growing good plants directly from corns, very tricky with most corms giving up the ghost. Much easier with cyclamen of any variety in the green. Good luck!
