Info: Daisy or Marguerite is, next to the poppy, the summer meadow flower par excellence. It impresses with its pretty yellow-white flower heads and is a beautiful addition to borders and perennial beds as well as meadows. It is also an excellent cut flower.
Sowing & care: Sowing takes place from April to July in widespread form directly outdoors. There is no need to cover the seeds with soil. Marguerites love sunny locations with a humus soil that is not too dry. It reacts sensitively to wet soils. Marguerites are persistent and generally sow themselves again at their habitat.
