I'm Donna Emery from Glover Nursery in West Jordan, Utah, and today we're going to learn how to grow Gerber daisies. This is a Gerber daisy. It's native to South Africa, I believe, so it's not hardy in cold climates, but it makes a great summer annual or container plant. It will grow in most soils and in most locations. I think filtered shade is best if you're in a hot climate like ours. The one thing you have to watch on Gerber daisies is watering. Don't let them wilt. If you go too long between waterings, it can be very difficult to revive the plant, so watch it carefully the first couple of weeks it's in the ground, and make sure you water regularly. Any garden fertilizer is fine, and they will keep blooming all summer long, until the first frost.
