All look good ,Cyclamen Persicum is a puzzle the ones I have are budded up they normally flower in spring.not sure if there is a recognised autumn flowering form.
C.Graecum plants have only the odd flower just no baking this year here, but somewhere it was hot.
What was special about what looks like a sempervivum next to your fern ,has some award ?

Brian-the persicum was in the rare in cultivation class.According to the notes with it,it is an Autumn flowering form.
My graecum has finished by the middle of September.
Good question about the Sempervivum.It was judged best plant in the novice section.There are large pots in the open classes.I look at them and think,so what.When they are in full flower they can look superb,though.
That's me finished in the novice classes now.Five 1sts yesterday takes me to 14.Red stickers will be a lot less frequent now.
Part 2 to come,will also message you later.

well done Pcw. the plants are lovely. I love cyclamen and these are beautiful.

The Townsendia rothrockii may be small but it seems to be making up for it with that lovely flower. As for the cyclamen : love them! Our outdoor ones have done quite well this year and are spreading.

Congratulations on gaining FIVE 1sts, Pcw.

Well done Pcw! Brilliant.
And weren't the cyclamen gorgeous, especially the first one.

Playing catch up again PCW. Well done on 5 firsts. It might not be too hard to do well among the 'Big Boys'. Your plants are always very well presented. I like the cyclamen but I would not worry if I did not get flowers with so much beautiful foliage on show.
