Note: Remember, plant Gerbera seeds in SPRING after any frost has passed (depending on your area).

  • Areas with full to partial sun are best for growing & caring for these precious plants. They tolerate light frost, but where this occurs, they should be planted in shade.
  • The best results for outdoor planning are areas where there’s mild temperature & a minimum night temperature above 59 degrees F (6 degrees C). Gerberas aren’t affected by maximum temperatures so they endure harsh sunlight.
  • The relative humidity where you plant should average 65% with exposure to full sun. (During the cooler months – November through May – water the plants only when soil becomes fairly dry.
  • Plants grow best in temperatures near 75 degrees F. Avoid planting in areas that reach below 45 degrees F.)
  • Carefully choose (don’t “manhandle”) 4-6 seeds from the packet & a medium sized-pot. Use a spade to set them two-and-a-half inches deep & at least a foot apart under healthy enriched soil. (Peat grass helps the plants drain well, but if soil is high in sand content it drains well, so you don’t need peat grass.)
  • Water immediately; thereafter, water seeds daily to keep soil moist around your delightful daisies – but don’t water so much that soil becomes muddy or pools water at the bottom of a pot, or at the bottom stem if in a garden!
  • Fertilize every two weeks with any organic fertilizer.
  • Water regularly to make sure the soil stays evenly moist while they bloom. After blooming for the season, allow them to dry out slightly.
  • Remove dead blooms with garden shears to encourage the gerberas to keep blooming for as long as possible.
