Cafe A Vin


I’m not keen on modern shopping precincts that are made up of chain shops and restaurants, but I can handle the new area at Spitalfields because it has some nice landscaping, and some quite nice restaurants too.

I liked this combo outside the Cafe A Vin. It contains two of my ‘banned’ bedding plants, but I’m prepared to let that go because the white-edged leaves of the euonymus and the petals of the cyclamen complement each other so nicely.

When I walked past again a few days later, the cyclamen had all been taken out! Cyclamen don’t like being cold and wet, so maybe the snow finished them off…

  1. Yes, my cyclamen are looking none-too-healthy in my windowbox at the moment. They may soon be doing a vanishing act too, but I think I’m going to replace with sowing some early carrots rather than struggling to find a floriferous substitute. N x

  2. My cyclamen in my window boxes are being very moody – one day down in the dumps, and the next perky as if nothing happened. It’s like having teenagers in.
