Lewisia . . . please does anyone have any tips on planting these? I'm planning to put one in a gravel bed but am not sure at what angle (I know they don't like rain in the crown).



Hi Sheila if your gravel bed is flat you could have problems as they really don't like water sitting in the crown. We plant sideways on in crevasses between rocks.

Many thanks Mg and Sbg . . . more or less what I thought. It will go between some largish stones half under a Libertia at 45 degrees, so hopefully that will work.
