Cultivation Advice Mesembryanthemum Pastel Mixed

  • Sow from 6-8 weeks before the last frost onto the surface of a free-draining, open structured, fine sowing compost and germinate under cover.
  • Cover trays with clear or milky polythene to maintain humidity, until the first seedlings are visible.
  • Germination takes around 7-10 days at 15-20C (not warmer as higher temperatures depress germination).
  • Keep the germinating seedlings moist at all times.
  • After around 5 weeks, plant the seedlings on to trays and plant out after all danger of frost has passed.
  • Protect young plants from slugs and snails
