When we first moved into our house I knew one day we would have Daisies visible from the inside of the windows. I love Daisies! They have been my favorite flower for as long as I can remember. I have never had a lot of success growing them in the past! But, now we have a thriving Daisy garden with other fun perennials growing throughout. And every year they get bigger and better.
Here is what I have learned about planting a thriving Daisy garden.
- Plant from seed. This was my biggest mistake! I bought plants all the time and they never lasted. But, when I used Shasta Daisy seeds things really took off. Be sure to plant them after the danger of frost is over.
- Be sure you plant in the right place for sunlight, Our garden gets good morning sun and late afternoon/evening shade. Where we live it is HOT, so we had to protect them from that burning afternoon sun.
- Prepare your ground with some good potting soil and plant seeds according to the directions on the back of your seed packet..
- Water, water, water. This is so important. The seeds can’t sprout if they don’t stay wet for the first few weeks. I love to use Gilmour tools for my watering needs. Having been in business for over 60 years they aim to exceed the needs of gardeners and homeowners who want the very best for their gardens. I use the Gilmour Flexogen hose because it is the only 8-layer hose in the market. The Flexogen’s patented construction offers durability and flexibility. Not only is it the longest-lasting and most durable hose in its class, but it also has a lifetime warranty! You can find the Gilmour Flexogen hose at your local home improvement or garden store.
One last thing I wanted to mention about the Flexogen hose. Have you ever run over your hose and its end gets totally smashed. Grrr! It’s so frustrating! With the crush-resistant brass couplings (as opposed to weaker stamped-brass fittings) this hose end won’t crush! Yay!
