I agree with Rolands advice on Cyclamen coum and hederifolium, best grown
from seed and planted out
We can have heavy rain here in July too, and any other month. These
Cyclamen, (and C alpinum, cilicium, intaminatum, repandum vividum) can take
summer rain in the open ground provided that there is no standing water.
These Cyclamen all survived happily in the open ground or open sand plunges
in 2007 see this link,
