How to Plant, Grow, and Care for Shasta Daisies
Watch for the bugs...Shasta Daisies are beautiful, but mine attracted an abundance of earwigs that were attacking the other plants in the garden as well. When I dug up the daisies, I found that the earwigs were nesting all around the roots, there was an entire community! Unfortunately, I removed all of the Shasta Daisies in my organic landscape rather than deal with a maintenance of ridding them. I haven't had a problem with earwigs for 2 years now.
To A. Rockwell - please research the plant and company and reviews. May not be what they portray. Seemed too good to be true.
To Almanac - thank you for your solid advice on daisies.
Miracle Daises (according to internet) are a type of Daisy which grows spiral pattern; green seed garden has them; they are really spectacular; (id never heard of them; I might try the seeds);
Daisies have always been one of my favorite flowers. In fact, they were the flowers in my bridal bouquet.
Hi Catherine, I wanted to let you know I found your article about growing sashta daisies very helpful. Thank you, Richard
As soon as the flowers start to look like they’re dying (browning, wilting petals), they can be snipped off! Unless, of course, you want the plant to produce seed, in which case you would want to let the flowers mature fully before cutting them down.
