Cyclamen Plants
Q.

Is Cyclamen subject to being eaten by moles/voles?

Zone 36272 | roswithaj added on August 29, 2019 | Answered

I planted 14 border lilies this spring and moles ate them all. Now I'm going to try cyclamen but I need to know if moles will eat them if I put them in the ground or if I should plant them in a flower pot.

If you have moles in the area, then they will terrorize just about anything. They don't even have to eat it to kill it. Since they burrow, they also destroy the roots by doing so whether they consume it or not.

You will have to, either, control the pests or grow them in container. You could even do both!
