How to plant & care for Flowering Plants

WATER:
Gerbera daisies need regular watering, around 1 inch per week. Water only when the soil has dried an inch or two below the surface.

Like many flowers that are repeat bloomers, gerbera daisies benefit significantly from pruning and deadheading. Care should be taken to maintain the plant regularly throughout the growing season, whi
PROPAGATION:
If looking to grow gerbera daisies from seed, you can start seeds indoors approximately 12 to 18 weeks before the last frost date in your region. It's a good idea to sow seeds in peat or paper pot

The amount of fertilizer your gerbera daisies need depends on the quality of your soil. To keep the flowers blooming all summer long, a monthly feeding with a water-soluble fertilizer is recommended.
