Plant of the Week: Cyclamen
Hardy cyclamen are the jewels of the winter garden, spangling the grass or the ground under shrubs and trees in swept-back petals of brilliant magenta, soft pink and snowy white, and brightening up your day at a time when all is grey and dreary.
The slightly larger variety at 8cm tall, Cyclamen hederifolium, has larger flowers, nodding on wiry little stems from October through autumn. Its smaller cousin, C. coum, is just 5-6cm tall and a welcome appearance in the depths of coldest January and February. Both have lovely marbled leaves carpeting the ground for the rest of the winter, making them all-round garden performers.
Harvest haricot beans
Leave a few French beans to ripen and mature to enjoy a secondary harvest of shelling beans, also known as haricots. Once the pods are brown and papery dry you can shell the beans inside and store in airtight containers. Soak overnight and cook thoroughly before enjoying in stews and soups.
