Site Selection

African daisy is an annual that prefers full sun and well-drained soils. Once established, plants are drought tolerant.

Cultivation

Direct sow outdoors once the danger of frost has passed. Seed can also be started indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost and transplanted outdoors once the danger of frost has passed. Optimal soil temperatures for germination are 70-75°F. Seeds require light for germination. Sow seeds no more than 1/16" deep and 4-6" apart. Seeds will germinate in 10-30 days. Thin seedlings so mature plants are 8-12" apart.

    (verified owner):

    I was so disappointed in these. They have completely died in mid-July, after never really blooming well. Even the ones I had planted in the best soil, and I had kept them watered/fertilized. They never did bloom as well as the calendula, and were fussier. I guess I will stick to the calendula for now.
