Gerbera Daisy (Gerbera Jamesonii Jaguar Fire Dark Eye Mix) - Grown as a perennial in frost free zones, but can easily be grown as annuals in colder climates. Compact plants and short flower stems are ideal for efficient, high density production. Grows 8 - 10 inches tall and 6 - 8 inches wide.
Gerbera Jamesonii plants are a good bedding item, and of course a mainstay of the cutting garden. The Gerbera Daisy flower loves full sun or partial shade and appreciates deep, rich soil. Therefore, working in compost and other organics is helpful, and keep the soil evenly moist.
Sow Gerbera Daisy seeds indoors 10 weeks before the last frost. Use starter trays and sterile potting mix. Place the pointed end of the flower seed down when sowing, and barely cover the seeds as they need light to germinate. Transplant outdoors once danger of frost has passed. You may also sow Gerbera Daisy seed directly outdoors when soil temperatures are warm. Gerbera Jamesonii care includes removing the spent blooms and stems as well as applying a liquid, balanced fertilizer every other week throughout the blooming season.
