Ashley, indeed a very beautiful Cyclamen alpinum. You don't come across that much anymore, it is also a bit more difficult in the garden and does better in a pot.

Thanks Marc and Herman.  Here I think the main challenge is summer rain, so with a batch of seedlings coming along I'll try them under bushes or trees with roots keeping conditions a bit drier.

Such a lovely cyclamen, Ashley. Does it flower earlier or later than C. coum for you?

I might give it a go if I can get hold of seeds, but it would have to take its chance amongst tree roots as I try to avoid having lots of pots and containers. There are at least a couple of places in my garden that get uncomfortably dry for most plants in summer thanks to all the roots, so if it is indeed summer moisture that causes problems with garden cultivation then I should be able to accommodate it.

Daft question from someone who ought to know. When is the optimum time to take the gillions of seedlings which have germinated on top of the large established hederifolium corms and pot them up to be grown on and re-homed elsewhere?
I know I used to grow them commercially, but for some reason I have failed utterly here to successfully transplant babies. Annoying.

Thanks Redmires. Here it's flowering at about the same time as coum caucasicum in the garden.

I do it when they're in leaf, although it's a fiddly job because the stems are quite fragile, then grow them on in a cool place.

I prepare seed trays with the potting mix of choice and then gently pull out the one- leaved babies and immediately line them up in the prepared rilles in the trays and leave them to their own devices for a year or so and then plant them out or pot them on. There appears to be hardly any loss unless an overzealous blackbird comes along. I think it is somewhere at the end of October when they are all appearing. I am weeding the normal ones  out otherwise you end up with sooo many!

Marco ten Hoope's Cyclamineus website has a nice seedlist (although mostly sold out now until next season).

It's snowing here now, so I took a quick photo of Cyclamen elegans (Cyclamen coum subsp. elegans) before it gets covered up.
