Description

Absolutely perfect for walls or crevices in your garden, this delightful plant produces fleshy round leaves with an uneven edge, spread at the base of the plant, from which emerge reddish stalks covered with tiny green flowers. A fascinating curiosity, this is the one you may have spotted many times out on your country walks and wondered "What is that?!"

Sowing Advice

For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
