Description

Our Easy Grow range of flower, fruit and vegetable seeds have been specially selected for superb performance with minimum fuss! Perfect for beginner growers and experienced gardeners alike, these reliable varieties are easy to germinate and grow to maturity, delivering colourful blooms and bountiful crops with every packet you sow.


Thriving in hot conditions, Mesembryanthemum 'Magic Carpet Mixed' simply loves poor, dry soils where most other plants would fail. These drought tolerant Livingstone Daisies are perfect for planting on sunny banks and borders where they will quickly knit together to form a rich carpet of colour. You can even try them in a low maintenance hanging basket where they'll only need watering now and then. Height: 10cm (4"). Spread: 30cm (12").


Culinary note: Leaves can be eaten raw, mainly being used as a spinach substitute. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Sowing

Sow February to April at 15-20C (60-70F) in John Innes Seed Compost. Sow seed on surface of compost and gently firm down compost. Keep soil damp but not wet, but do not exclude light, which is beneficial to germination. Sealing in a polythene bag after sowing is also helpful. Germination usually takes 15-21 days.

When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow on in cooler conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm (12in) apart in a sunny spot on light well drained soil.

More Info
Livingstone daisies require little maintenance. Allow the soil to dry out between waterings and feed every 3 weeks whilst in active growth.
