Sowing: Direct sow in spring after the last chance of frost, sowing on the surface of the soil; press the soil down lightly and keep moderately moist until germination, which should take place within 10-14 days. To start indoors, sow on the surface of a flat 6-8 weeks before the last frost of spring. Keep the soil lightly moist and at a temperature of 70 degrees F until germination. Transplant or thin the seedlings as soon as they reach a height of several inches.

Growing: Water seedlings regularly until they become established; mature plants also appreciate occasional watering, but too much moisture will cause disease and root rot. To encourage branching and bushy growth, pinch off the growing tips. When grown from seed, Shasta daisies may not bloom fully until their second year. Tall plants may need support or staking. Watch out for aphids, slugs, and earwigs, which can cause damage. This plant will self-seed and spread slowly by rhizomes; mature plants can also be divided in the fall or early spring. Cut the plants down to 2" above the ground after the first frost. These plants attract butterflies and resist deer.



All multiple orders of the same seed are put in the same bag. For example if you order 500 beefsteak tomato seeds x 3 then 1500 seeds will be put in the same bag. We do not send out 3 individual bags with 500 in each. This goes for all seeds unless they are listings of different seeds.
