What should I do with my cyclamen that has just about finished flowering
My cyclamen plant is just about to finish flowering, what should I do now to keep the plant happy until next year. If I should fertilise the plant what type of fertiliser should I use. The cyclamen has flowered for the last six months.
After your cyclamen has finished flowering, continue to water the plant regularly and lightly fertilise until the foliage begins to die off. Then place the pot in a shady part of the garden and keep it dry during the dormant period (summer). In autumn, the cyclamen will begin to re-sprout, if it hasn't, water the pot. In no time the plant will produce leaves and initiate flowers.
