Big Yellow

Most daisies need attention to get the best results from them. With the huge effort the Springstar Cape Daisies Of Africa put on when they flower they need extra nutrition. Prepare the soil in the garden bed by digging to loosen the garden, incorporate compost and a dressing of blood and bone. In dry periods water weekly. Once flowering has begun liquid fertilizing is beneficial. If you want to bring the plant into flower the following season a light prune once the flower has finished and a dressing of a complete fertilizer will be needed. There are few insect pests other than an occasional grub which are controlled easily by picking them off.
