Really good young plants, some in containers and some in a garden bed. Such happy flowers love them. Downside you must keep deadheading.

They’ve been in flower from late May and if anything they’re even better now despite three frosts.

I received 15 healthy young plants in the spring. It was too early to plant them outside so they were potted up individually, left in the greenhouse for the first few weeks and they grew away very vigorously. They were planted in a couple of large pots, fed weekly with a rotation of seaweed and comfrey and deadheaded regularly. They were covered in daisies all summer, looking beautiful and so cheerful.They are looking a bit tired now, the flowers are thinning out (mid September). A word of warning, though, the daisies close up if they are not in direct sun and they only open when the sun hits them again, so you really want to put them somewhere where they get the maximum amount of sunshine to get the best out of them.
