How to grow Crazy daisy from seed

Growing this lovely flower from seeds is easier than you might think! You don’t need to stress about finding the perfect spot to plant them. The simplest way to get your seeds going is by sowing them in September, either in a greenhouse or a module tray, but make sure they’re protected from heavy rainfall to avoid washing them away. The combination of warm daytime temperatures and cooler nights acts as a natural alarm clock for the seeds. You can also try sowing them in spring, but keep in mind that the temperatures are usually a bit cooler, so germination might take a bit longer.

You can mimic these temperature fluctuations to encourage seed germination by placing the seeds in the fridge for 2 to 3 weeks before sowing them indoors. Another trick is to start them indoors and then move the module tray with the seeds outside for a few hours or nights. Once germination begins, you’re on the right track. When growing them indoors, make sure they get plenty of light. If your seedlings look spindly and don’t develop their true leaves, relocate them to a cooler, well-lit spot.

Once your seedlings reach a decent size, it’s time to plant them in a sunny spot. You might be tempted to plant them closer together than the recommended 30 to 40 centimeters – and that’s totally understandable. But trust me, I’ve made that mistake for you! These perennial plants start off slow but will grow much larger within a year.

Long-lasting and easy-to-grow cut flower

The best thing about these hardy perennials is their big, long-lasting flowers. In my opinion, they’re an improvement on classic daisies. The pictures truly don’t do them justice! You can pick the flowers when they start to open but before the pollinators pay a visit. Unpollinated flowers tend to last longer in a vase. On a warm summer day, the flowers might wilt, but if you put them in a bucket of water, they’ll perk up and continue to show their beauty for over a week. Enjoy your ‘Crazy Daisy’ blooms!
