African Daisie are amongst the most popular of flowers, and they are perfect for beginning gardeners as they are easy to grow and hardy.
Planting & Care:
- If you start from seed, they will bloom the second and each following year.
- Soil: Daisies like rich, well drained soil and full sunshine, but they will readily tolerate poorer soils and partial shade.
- Give them Space! You can also divide and separate them as a planting gets too dense and thick. If you do not do this, the plants will begin to crowd each other out, competing for nutrients and the blooms will be smaller.
- Fertilization: A little general purpose fertilizer in the early growth stage will help the plants develop big and strong stalks and leaves. Just before blooming, provide a fertilizer high in phosphorous to help promote big, bright blooms.
Note: If you are sensitive to pollen, avoid chrysanthemum and daisy arrangements as they are ragweed relatives.
