Daisy Is The Friendliest Flower

I personally think that Daisy is one of the friendliest flower, dont you think so too? Daisy is not only very easy to grow but they are also very easy to maintain, if not requires no maintainance at all. It is a perennial flower, which comes back and bloom year after year, if planted in the right location. Daisy works great in a sunny area, for maximum growth performance.

Daisy can be planted mostly using their tiny seeds, all you need is spread the seeds in the area where you want them planted, with the soil cultivated. To avoid the birds and other fowls from eating the seeds, its best to cover the seeds around 1/4 inch of soil. To promote germination, keep the soil moist but not flooded. Once the plant becomes established and grow up with full-grown leaves showing, then you can water once a day or three times a week, just to give them nutrients and encourange them to flower. The great thing about Daisy is that, once their root are established in the ground, they require minimal water and Daisies are quite drought tolerant.

So if you plant early, after the danger of frost, you should be getting blooms during the summer or possibly spring even. And they will surely add beautiful colors to your yard. Daisy comes in different colors and sizes, but the most common ones are the while petals with yellow, and could grow up to around 3-4 feet tall.
