Daisies Are Beautiful

Aug 29, 2012

Daises are one of the most common plants found in gardens. If you want to learn how to grow daisies, check your local nursery to see what kinds of ingredients and watering times will foster growth. A typical balance of soil ingredients is a healthy dose of nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus to help root acceleration, plant growing, and proper blooming. Seeds can be found at local nurseries, and while there, be sure to ask what methods and directions are needed to grow daisies. It would help if you always planted daisies in an area with plenty of sunshine, and regular watering is needed to help grow these plants. Watering plants can be tricky, and it takes some discipline and scheduling, but daisies do need plenty of water to grow. Pruning is also an essential aspect of growing daisies. When it comes to pruning, you should always do quick cuts and clips. Be sure to leave the length of any stem at least half its size when pruning. Pruning will weed out a stem that is not growing and will come to make room for new leaves and petals. Pruning also guarantees the proper form and overall health of the plant. Not only is pruning crucial, but a process called deadheading is just as vital. Deadheading is picking off the petals of daisies that are not growing. That should be done mostly when the flowers are in full bloom and during the summer. Just like pruning, pinching away struggling petals will help daisies maintain proper shape while making room for new petals. Deadheading and pruning are great ways to guarantee bushy and thriving petals while trimming down any excess leaves and petals that are not performing. Daisies are beautiful flowers that will reward gardeners with their elegant fragrance and vibrant colors.
