Q.Cyclamen Hederifolium (CH). tubers

Zone Stockton on Tees TS211DJ UK | Anonymous added on June 1, 2020 | Answered

I have a well established plot of CH, due to some home extension work I am having to dig the large tubers up, I would like to replant them in the spring. Questions:- 1. Is it possible to lift and replant? 2. During the time the tubers are not going to be in the soil how do I look after them ? Any advice would be appreciated theses plants are about 18 years old and always provides my garden with an abundance of colour.

Dig up tubers using a garden shovel or trowel. Although cyclamen corms or tubers can be transplanted while in bloom, it is easiest to transplant tubers while they are in the dormant stage.
Move into pots while you wait for your spring planting.
