I started with only a few plants, and now the colony covers a considerable area.  Don’t think I could denude it if I tried.

Bowles, the famous gardener who died in 1954, and whose Enfield family home became a Mecca for gardeners, had he said, ‘an insatiable desire for cyclamens’.  He knew everyone in the gardening world and as a result acquired good forms from several of his friends.  In my turn I was lucky enough to be given seed that was said to be ‘Bowles’ strain’, and it certainly has particularly attractive patterning, which it passes on to its progeny.  But the plant I admire most, with white flowers and wonderfully patterned, pointed leaves, was just sitting in a nondescript little nursery years ago, not labeled as anything special.  It was though.  Moral: Never pass a nursery without running an eye over their stock!
