Specialty product of Funabashi< Cyclamen >

 
 

In Funabashi City, growing of cyclamen started around 1965 and now there are 7 cultivators. It has been the important farm product of Funabashi city and holds approx.1% of total 10 billion yen annual agricultural output.

Cyclamens start growing in the nursing pot and are well taken care of in the farmers’ greenhouse from early spring. They start blooming from around the end of October and meet the high season from beginning of November towards December for Christmas and year-end gifts.

Cyclamen’ s flower itself usually lasts 30~40 days. If the growing condition is good, the stems sprout one after another and cyclamen may keep blooming till May to June.

“Garden cyclamen”, frost-hardy mini-cyclamen, was developed around 1996 for outdoor gardening.

“Garden cyclamen” is sold in the small pot at a reasonable price. It is recommendable for you to start growing from this winter !

In addition, at the greenhouse of the cyclamen cultivators, more than 10 thousands pots of colorful cyclamen flowers can be seen from the end of October. We can buy them directly or send through the quick home delivery.

It may be your pleasure to visit the greenhouse once and see the flowers !
