Beautiful ground cover that needs constant moistur

1 August 2017
I've planted these at the bases of most of my feature plants (roses, star jasmine, snail creeper) and managed to get germination and flowering in the middle of Winter (albeit in Inner-West Sydney). Did have a couple of instances in which germination failed altogether, but I'd put this down to the soil momentarily drying out. I suppose they're a bit fragile in this regard, but if you take care of them only a few need germinate to get decent coverage at full maturity. In potting mixtures that were better at retaining moisture compared to my garden beds this was extremely easy.

I had impressive germination rates & the plants that were started in the spring grew back to be even more impressive in the autumn

very disappointed

In all 3 areas I have nothing, it has been over 3 weeks in the 2 time of trying, other plants from other seeds and bulbs and plants are growing, so it's not the soil.
