Description

What a pretty and delicate, yet glamorous beauty this is, a patch of giant daisies in the garden, vase and dried. Ideal for direct sowing and if you keep picking, more and more flowers form. This hit the top ten in our new cut flowers trial last summer.

Great as fresh cut flowers in July and August, or use as dried flowers for long-lasting decorations. Feed and deadhead to prolong the flowering period.
