    How to Sow
    Indoors: March-April
    Outdoors: April through June.

    Sowing can be done in one of two ways:
    1. Easiest indoors is using a propagator from March - or perhaps a cold frame. The best temperature is 18-22 degrees centigrade. Fill your pots or seedling tray with seeding compost - 1 seed per small pot. Cover with 0.5 cm compost and sprinkle with water - heat will do the rest. Plant outdoors from mid-May. Hold them back until warm enough by standing somewhere cooler.
    2. Sow in the garden preferably in full sun from the end of April through June. Loosen the soil with a fork to at least 30 cm deep. Draw a straight furrow 1 cm deep and label the row. Mix the seed with dry sand and sprinkle it thinly along the row between thumb and forefinger. Cover with 0.5 cm soil, press carefully down and sprinkle with water. Extra rows at 30 cm apart. The seedlings are susceptible to frost so do protect them with some garden fleece.
    The seeds will germinate in 14-21 days.

  • Care
  • Water extra during dry periods and keep the bed weed-free to allow the Ox-eye Daisy to thrive. The Ox-eye Daisy is very undemanding but likes a fertile and moist soil. The plant will flower from June to the first frosts. Regular dead heading will promote reflowering.
    Harvesting
    Simply cut the stems of these lovely flowers with scissors or a sharp knife. Picking direct with the hand should be possible too.
