Rate of growth
Average
Soil type
Amend your planting soils with a little organic matter to promote healthy growth and blooming. The University of Florida suggests adding an inch or two of compost or peat moss to the soil before planting. These daisies prefer neutral to slightly acidic soil levels ranging from 6.1 to 7.5 pH. Add a bit of dolomitic limestone to more acidic soils.
Watering instructions
Water the plant deeply whenever the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Let the pot drain thoroughly before replacing it on the saucer or drip tray, as the plant is likely to rot in soggy soil. Water carefully and keep the leaves as dry as possible. Water sparingly during the winter months, but don?t allow the soil to become bone dry.
