Bellis- Daisy

A cultivated form of the well known daisy which occurs as a weed in many a lawn. Although the wild species is actually much prettier, many people prefer the double monstrosities marketed by growers early in spring.

Situation:

A bedding plant.

Soil:

Any reasonable garden soil will do.

Propagation:

Cultivated daisies are biennials, ie they are sown in early to mid summer in a shady seed-bed, pricked out once, and moved to their permanent position in the autumn. In winter they should be protected from severe frost by means of conifer branches or straw.

Bellis perenms: Height to 15cm; flowering season early spring to early summer. There are small-flowered and large-flowered strains in a variety of colours between white and red. Fi hybrids are the most constant forms. }
