Once I deadheaded the plants they looked perfectly fine...
I'm hoping to find some cyclamens in the next few months, right now they are all at full price & looking nice as they just arrived in from the nursery.
Won't take long before they start looking less than desirable & that's when I have a chance to add to my woodland garden on the cheap.
Only risk is that they tend to over water their plants & some of the bargain buys have started to rot before they are marked down.
pic 1 - bought this more for the pot - the shallow bowl I had ideas of planting with succulents but after deadheading the plant flowered & is rather pretty so it can stay.
pic 2 - close up of the flower - don't actually know what it is.
Pic 3 - close up of the fuchsia
Pic 4 - my other orphan was this fuchsia in a hanging pot.
