How do I plant Delosperma Jewel of the Desert Moonstone?

When planting your newly purchased Jewel of the Desert Moonstone, dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but nothing deeper. If needed, you might 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 of thumb is to be able to still see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole.

In the very early spring and midsummer all new growth has hardened off and flower buds begin to set, this is the best time to feed your plant.

Once doing so, your plant will grow healthy foliage and strong stems. Follow the same steps again in early summer to provide the necessary nutrients for your beautiful flowers.
