Water needs

Daisies are pretty flowers that grow both wild in lawns and in pots when grown. In the first case, daisies are able to make use of the water they receive from the rains, thus recovering all the water resources they need. The daisies, or “Bellis Perennis”, which are grown in pots, on the other hand, need to be watered regularly. In any case, it is essential that the surrounding soil is allowed to dry well between one irrigation and the next, since the daisies hate water stagnation. The roots, in fact, could undergo irreversible radical rot leading to their death. On average, watering is done 1-2 times a week during the summer season, decreasing in winter.

Cultivation and care

The cultivation, as well as the care, of Daisies is by no means a complicated operation. It is, in fact, a flower with very few needs, starting from the type of soil ideal for continuing with cultivation. This means garden soil is fine. It is very important that the soil is well drained, so it is advisable to lighten it with a little pumice stone and a small amount of sand. If possible, a little organic matter should be added to the soil. The reproduction of Daisies is carried out by seed or by rhizomes. In both cases, this plant guarantees a safe rooting. Reproduction by seed is carried out by planting the seeds during the winter season directly in special seedbeds. The removal of the rhizomes, on the other hand,


To guarantee the Daughters a healthier life and a respectable flowering, fertilization is an indispensable operation. Only, in fact, by integrating the natural elements that the plant needs, you can get the best from your plants. In particular, in the case of daisies, it is necessary to provide for the administration of special fertilizers for flowering plants with a periodicity of about 10 days. The ideal fertilizer should preferably be diluted in water and administered at the same time as watering. The doses are very important in order not to burn the root system of Daisies. For this reason, it is essential to read the instructions on the packaging very carefully, trying not to change them, also respecting the most suitable seasonality,

Daisies: Exposure and disease

The ideal exposure for the Daisies is certainly that in very sunny places. Semi-shade conditions, however, are also well tolerated. These plants are not particularly afraid of even the coldest temperatures, to the point that many times the blooms manage to take place even in winter. The areas in which the daisies certainly grow best, like wildfire, are the prairies. One of the biggest problems for this flower is certainly represented by root rot, which originates from excess water. This problem, if not excessively advanced, can be solved simply by periodically administering the correct doses of water. The insects that infest the Daisies are very few. It rarely happens that aphids create infestations.
