How to Sow Livingstone Daisy Ice Plant Seeds
A traditional flower grown in Britain. Popular in pots, bedding & containers. Each seed has the potential to yield a stunning, mixed colour ice plant bush. Blooms sit on top of fleshy foliage, which is a deep green colour. Ice plant seeds will do very well in dry conditions, where the soil quality is much poorer. In terms of difficulty, this is a fairly easy colourful flower to grow.
