Welcome to Wild Cyclamen.

This is not so much a small business, rather it is a tiny wee one.

I am neither a horticulturist or a florist, so it is more of a "because I can" sort of project and very much because I just love flowers.

My lovely Mum had always wanted to be a Land Girl, but missed out as she was too young by a year. She would also have loved to have studied Horticulture, but unfortunately, this too was out of reach in those days, and she studied medicine instead. Once retired, her flowers became her passion, and she created the most beautiful garden at our family home in North Yorkshire.  

 

After Mum passed away a few years ago, I decided to return to North Cornwall where I had lived previously. I had inherited Mum's love of gardening and had this crazy notion to grow flowers for cutting and selling. The more I thought about it, the more the ideas started to flow, and I started researching if it were possible. I spoke with the wonderful team from Flowers from the Farm, a network and support group for British flower growers. They encouraged me to take it seriously and the plan started to hatch!

 

So… moving on 12 months and there I was with a hired van full to the brim of Mum's garden Literally, full. My friend and I had had to swing and lean on the doors to get them to shut! Well, there was no way I was leaving it all behind as it held my very happy family memories, and it was Mum and Dad's pride and joy. We arrived in Cornwall safely with all my lovely plants in one piece, but I still had not found anywhere to live and so my "garden" and I, plus Pebble the dog, spent another 12 months "camping".

 

Finally in April 2020, I moved into my new home. This is it! All the photographs you see are of the flowers I have grown, so you can get an idea of what is available. 

                                     

I really hope I can pass on the joy and beauty that flowers can bring.

I look forward to hearing from you.
