How to Plant Miniature Daisies From Seeds


Miniature daises (Bellium minuta) are hardy ground cover plants that grow to a height of 3 inches with half-inch blooms. The green foliage lays flat on the ground. They tolerate drought, poor soil, and shade. White blooms with bright yellow centers last from mid spring until the end of summer. Miniature daisies are recommended for novice gardeners since they do not require a lot of care and can be easily raised from seeds.

Step 1

Add manure and compost to the garden bed in 2-inch layers. Mix thoroughly with a rake.

Step 2

Make 1-inch-deep rows in the garden bed with the hoe. Sow the daisy seeds directly into the rows. Cover with soil and lightly tamp it down.

Step 3

Water until the ground is moistened but not soaked. Fertilize after sowing the seeds and again after the blooms have appeared.
