How do I plant Delosperma Jewel of the Desert?

We suggest when planting your newly purchased Jewel of the Desert Ice plant that you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil you may need to add a locally sourced compost or topsoil to the back-fill soil. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant to deep. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole.
