Unusual to see them flowering this time of year Kevvo - they usually flower in the winter, then die off in the summer to re-emerge as the months get cooler.

Precisely Dovefromabove. i read all the gen in the link you gave me and it repeated that over and over again. I see that this plant has a lot of the associations of a busy lizzie, like half brothers really!
But this is still all very complicated to me. I have a very vague recollection of going in the shop and asking for a plant that flowered all the year round, this is what i bought! Yet cyclamens are not like that are they? But it did mention the fact that florists cyclamens (potted variety) are different from the other wilder type. Maybe that is it?
I knew nothing about cyclamens before today, I am now going to write a book and to see if channel 4 wil give me a weekly half hour show on cyclamen cutivation. I now consider myslf an expert.
Thank you once again for your help. Much appreciated
