Three Group Seed Swaps You Should Check OutThree Group Seed Swaps You Should Check Out
By dave, December 21, 2015

There are three group seed swaps currently recruiting members. The idea is that a large group of members get together, and each person lists the seeds they have. They then each call dibs on each other's seeds and at the end each person mails what was dibbed to a central person, who then mails each person's items back out. It's a fantastic way to get a huge amount of new seeds. Click to find out more!

Natural occurence of cyclamen persicum: zone 9+10

What I learned about cyclamen
My cyclamen persicum loves cold temperatures, even temperatures near by freezing and a slightly night frost does not disturb this plant. So I decided to place it outside by day and bring it in by night. Here in austria, near vienna we have now, in february, maximum 0°C by day and -5°C by night. My cyclamen is thankful for this extra-care. She also loves slightly wind. But on very windy days she stays inside.

By Marilyn on Feb 12, 2016 10:28 PM, concerning plant: Jame Sage (Salvia VIBE® Ignition Purple)

In 2014, I purchased this beauty in spring from Flowers By The Sea and it was blooming its head off when it arrived. Beautiful purple flowers!

After I got it, I planted it into a container, cut all buds and flowers off (so it would put all its energy getting rooted in), and in no time it was back in bloom and continued to be a blooming machine from spring through fall.

I grew Mesa Purple for a few years in a container, and 'Elk Phoenician Purple' surpasses it by a mile and is a winner! I got rid of 'Mesa Purple' and plan to only grow 'Elk Phoenician Purple'.

Very happy to be growing this one! It didn't overwinter for me in 2015, but I'm thinking of growing it again.

Edited to state..... 'Elk Phoenician Purple' was the original name given to it when I grew it in 2014.

By jmorth on Feb 11, 2016 6:09 PM, concerning plant: Sage (Salvia elegans 'Honey Melon')

This cultivar is equivalent to the S. elegans known as Pineapple Sage except Honey Melon starts blooming in early summer in more northern latitudes while the variety known as Pineapple starts blooming in late summer to fall in the same latitudes. The one known as Pineapple Sage is a short day plant, meaning blooming is triggered by shorter day length.
Both have edible leaves and flowers.
