I did a seed swop with Linz @ The Pondering Sheep (thanks Linz) and one of the seed varieties she sent me were mesembryanthemums.
My mum loves these so I wanted to have a go at growing them from seed. I must say that they have done really well and I now have a garden full of the sun loving beauties.
One of the attractions of mesembryanthemums is that the flower heads open out in the sunshine. I am pleased to say that they have started flowering and I look forward to watching the orange and red flower heads open up their smily faces as the sun shines this Summer.
If you want to grow mesembryanthemums then Thompson & Morgan supply mesembryanthemum seeds.
