How to Plant Hardy Cyclamen

In this video, Scott from Spring Hill Nurseries demonstrates how to plant cyclamen using an easy three-step method.

Step 1: Site Selection -- The key to growing cyclamen successfully is site selection. Cyclamens don't like full sun; partial sun to full shade is the right place for your cyclamen.

Step 2: Planting Depth -- You want to make sure you don\'t plant your cyclamen bulbs too deep. First, dig your hole about 6-8" inches, depending on your soil composition. Prepare the soil by adding good organic material, like peat and compost. Plant your bulbs about 1-2" deep.

Step 3: Good drainage -- the worse your soil (more clay consistency), the better you want to prepare your site.
