  • Easy ground cover
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.

Livingstone daisies require little maintenance. Allow the soil to dry out between waterings and feed every 3 weeks whilst in active growth.
Pot up ice plants in sharply drained, gritty compost and grow them on in frost free conditions. When they are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days before transplanting into their final positions. Mesembryanthemums thrive in poor sandy, sharply drained soil, in a sunny, sheltered position. Add plenty of sharp grit to the soil prior to planting in order to improve drainage and prevent the roots from rotting.
