Cyclamen hederifolium planting depth

Allthough I am in a much milder climat  (we get frost down to -8° 18F)  I
never put  more  then 2-3 cm (1") of soil on it. Otherwise  the tubesr make
a kind of  "stem" to get to the surface. If any doubt put a good layer of
mulch, compost etc on it
I agree with John that C pseudibericum  is a  hardy and and most
recommendable species.  I grow it here like C hederifolium, but   a dark
pink  mid winter flowering

> C. pseudibericum grows well outside here and is seeding around
> gently in the garden, so is certainly worth a try outside.
