Daisies are another great addition to a home garden to provide a burst of color to an otherwise green area. Popularly used in flower arrangements, the daisy comes in dozens of varieties, each of which has it’s own unique flower coloration. Daisies are one of the easiest plants to grow, and are a great “first plant” for kids to take care of and watch grow.

Tips for Planting and Growing Daisies in your Garden
Daisies can be started from seed, or as small nursery stock, but will not bloom until the second year of growth. Be sure to plant your daisies in an area that receives lots of sunshine and has fast draining soil. With regular fertilizer applications paired with a bloom booster that is high in phosphorous, your daisies will produce abundant blooms and spectacular colors as they flower.
As daisies grow in year after year, the bunches can become too dense and require dividing. By digging up the entire clump and cutting away the thick, woody center, you’ll be able to make divisions out of what is left, creating groups of two to three daisies in each division. Replant these just below the crown of the new plant, and enjoy your new daisies as they fill out the garden bed.
