Small, double daisy-like flowers with 15 cm (6) stems rising from tufts of shiny green foliage. Here is a great plant for early colour as it blooms from early April into May. Beautiful as an edging for borders or the rock garden. Thrives in lake-effect micro-climates. There are times when English Daisy does not readily reseed itself so we recommend seeding this specie every year to ensure continued flowering. Biennial hardy to Zone 4.
How to Grow
4800 seed/gram. Sow seed indoors in mid February, on top of the growing medium but do not cover as light aids germination. Germinate at 21 C (70 F) for 14 days. After that grow on under lights before hardening off and transplanting to a sunny site. Space plants 15 cm (6″) apart in the garden in full sun to partial shade. Prefers a rich, moist soil. Keep well watered during the growing season and feed monthly for best garden performance. A direct seeding can be done in May and June for flowering in the following year.
