Cyclamen Seedlings

Rather than leave a clump of cyclamen seedlings at the mercy of the builders boots, I transplanted them into gritty soil-based compost in cells.  They are on the east side of the greenhouse where I can keep an eye on them and once they are large enough I will plant them with the hellebores underneath the tulip tree.  I  have found upturned wire hanging baskets a brilliant way to protect cyclamen plants until they are well-established.
