Mesembryanthemums are suitable for rock gardens and the edges of borders.

The flowers appear from late June to September and will only open in bright sunshine.


Week 13: Sow seeds on the surface of pots and or trays of seed compost, and germinate at a temperature of 15°-20°C (60°-68°F).

Keep compost damp but not wet, do not exclude light, this is beneficial to germination.

Germination should take around four to five days.

Week 15-17: Prick out the seedlings into cells/trays when large enough to handle and gradually harden them off before planting out.

Week 22: Plant out 200-300mm (8"-12") apart in well-drained garden soil, a sunny spot is essential.
