Sow daisy seeds in full sun after danger of frost. In frost-free areas, Sow from fall to early spring. Sow seeds evenly and thinly and cover with 1/4" of fine soil. Keep evenly moist.
How to Grow
Daisy plants emerge in 7-21 days. Thin to stand about 18" apart when seedlings are 2" high. Feed plants in the spring with a balanced organic plant food, then a second time when flower buds form. Standard-size plants may need staking, or you can reduce their height by pinching stems back in spring, but dwarf types generally do not need support. Deadheading religiously will keep plants flowering until frost, especially young plants. Divide shasta daisies every 2 or 3 years to rejuvenate them. Discard the older, woody growth in the center of the clump and replant the rest.
Plant shasta daisies in sunny perennial gardens, and combine them with daylilies, iris, achillea, bellflowers, and hardy geraniums or cranesbills. Shasta daisies make the perfect cut flowers, and small cultivars do well in containers. Also consider planting shasta daisies in a cutting garden or a corner of a vegetable garden, where picking all the flowers will not affect the look of beds and borders.
