Well.. it is done.

Hi!
Well..I am most certainly in the cyclamen growing business now.

All told..I just spent more money on seed than some people make a year.

I need a drink.

Given that cyclamen are pretty pricey and are only an annual in most of Canada you won't find many smaller greenhouses growing them. Only the largest greenhouses deal with growing them. They then ship to nurseries to sell. Most people do not have the means to grow on the scale it sounds like you want to grow on. I sure didn't.
