Can anyone tell me what this plant is called, bought for me as a present and don't know if it's indoor or outdoor, thanks paula
it's a cyclamen. Couldn't say which species but it doesn't look like one of the UK hardy ones
You can remove the individual seed heads once the flower has finished - this should help boost the plant and to produce more new flowered stalks.

Keep indoors for the while Paula and water it from the saucer. When it looks like it's gone over, put it outside in a cool sheltered spot keeping it on the dry side, and it should reward you for another year I have one that is on its 3rd season, have just put it outside last week.
Agree with what's been said. Cyclamen, probably a persicaria cultivar.
Keep indoors in a coolish room in good light but not direct sun, watering from the bottom, until the flowers have finished. It will begin to die down , put it outside in a sheltered spot, I lay the pot on it's side. In the autumn repot the corm in fresh compost and bring it indoors again and resume watering.
