Daisy / Bellis

Daisy Flower Description

The original common wild daisy has been cultivated to produce a wide variety of larger and more colourful garden variations. Most types of daisies are ideal for flower beds and for mixing with other flowers in containers and hanging baskets.

Daisies come in a huge range of colours, sizes and heights. The loose rosettes of dark green leaves form a thick carpet on the ground.

Cultivation of Daisies

Daisy Flowers

Daisy seeds should be sown in late spring or early summer in shallow drills in an outdoor seed bed. Thin the seedlings out and then transfer to their permanent flowering position in early autumn.

The daisy plants should be placed between 15 and 23cm apart. Ordinary garden soil is suitable in a sunny, or partially shaded position.

To prevent seeding daisies should be regularly deadheaded.
