Livingstone Daisies


Livingstone Daisies (Mesembryanthemum crystallinum (Buzotu))

This was the peak for them, and what a show. I usually get blooms for the rest of the year, but I have always given them dry condition and with our heat this year, they got shocked, so this was about it. Still a good showing. I love them.

Thanks. I love them too, a must every year in my garden. Sorry your didn't have them this year Lincs. Just no flowers or no sprouts? I'm planning to watch them a little better next year, not let them dry too much. I wish I'd gotten longer to enjoy them.

I love these too, my mother used to sow these for me and prick them out into pots. (a job I just couldn't face as they are so tiny and fiddly).

They are wonders. I haven't grown them from seed yet, but I'll be doing that pricking next year for sure. I hope I can take it. lol.
