THINNING AND TRANSPLANTING: Separate and transplant seedling plants when they are 2 to 3 inches tall. Divide clumps every 4 to 6 years.

Ed's Special Advice

This permanent plant is very easy to grow. Does exceptionally well in full or partially sunny locations, where soil is well drained. Shasta Daisy should flower the first year from early starts or the following year from later sowing. Harvest cut flowers to prolong blooming period.
