8. Shasta Daisy
Daisies are a childhood favourite – who hasn’t pulled the petals off a daisy, one-by-one, as a child? Daisies can be taken for granted because they have such a simple, classic look to them, but they really do bring joy to everyone who sees them.
Care Requirements: Medium.
- Divide every 2 to 3 years in the spring.
- Apply a fertilizer formulated for perennials twice a year – once in the spring and again in mid-summer.
- Deadhead all spent flowers and in the autumn, you will need to cut them back to ground level so that the plant can concentrate on storing nutrients in its roots for the winter.
