How do you deadhead perennial daisies?
Also, should I cut back daisies?
Cut back the perennial daisy varieties after flowering, which can be in early summer or in fall, depending on the specific type. Remove up to a third of the foliage if it's still green to clean up the garden bed. Cut off the foliage near the soil surface if it has died back naturally for the winter.
Similarly, do daisies rebloom after deadheading? First of all, Shastas normally bloom in summer and will continue throughout fall if regular deadheading is performed. So yes, deadheading Shasta daisies (and other varieties) is a good idea. In fact, this simple pruning technique can produce heavier, longer-lasting blooms in daisy plants.
One may also ask, how do you get gerbera daisies to rebloom?
Fertilize every two weeks with a water soluble fertilizer that has a low middle number (like 15-7-15 or 12-2-12). This will help blooming and not leaf growth. Gerberas will not bloom continuously. They bloom, then take about a two week break to refuel then bloom again.
Do daisies like sun or shade?
Sun Exposure Daisies need as much sunlight as possible, especially in cooler climates. Most species require at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day during the summer to live. In hot, dry climates, daisies benefit from light shade in the afternoon when the sun is the most intense.
