Winter sowing shasta daisies is yet another option for anyone, who like me, is on a budget. One of the many reasons that I have grown to love this flower so much is because they can be grown from seed so easily. Regardless of whether or not you’re growing a cut flower patch or you’re just looking to grow flowers in your front yard for some extra pizzazz. Shasta daisy plants can definitely offer a great bloom!
In my experience, I haven’t noticed that these flowers need any special requirements for germination. However, it should also be noted that I have never tried to start these seeds indoors – I’ve always winter sowed them. Regardless, nature has been great at helping these seeds to germinate right on time here in my growing zone.
Since shasta daisy plants are technically a perennial flower, I begin the process of winter sowing them in late January and into early February. I’m almost certain that those who choose to start the seeds later would also have success. However, by starting early, I can ensure that the plants will bloom the first season. First season blooms can sometimes be too short for cut flowers, but it’s nice to get new plantings established as quickly as possible.
Shasta daisies, when planted in the right conditions, will come back and reward growers with flowers year after year. Their carefree growth is easily the biggest reason why I have come to appreciate them so much! Do you grow shasta daisies?
