Welcome splash of colour....

Welcome splash of colour....

This osteospernum self seeded in the tunnel and is giving a welcome splash on colour on these dreary November days. I'm still picking tomatoes every day.

I took some cuttings of my Osteospermum which looks like yours, and they are all sprouting!!! Is that Osteospermum supposed to be hardy?

Hazel, I got this two years ago and had it in a pot. I took it into the tunnel last autumn/winter and it self seeded there. I potted on a good few seedlings and had them in pots this year. I'm not sure if it would get through the winter out doors though.
