The daisies that grow in the wild do not need to be watered at all. In fact, they manage to extract the humidity they need directly from rainwater. If the daisies do not arise spontaneously but are grown, watering must be done regularly. Between an irrigation operation and the other, however, the soil must be completely dry. The daisies are quite suffering from water stagnation which can cause problems even of great magnitude, first of all the root rot and the consequent death of the plant. By watering the potted daisies on average once a week, you can make your plant live well. Weekly watering can be increased during the hottest times of the year such as summer.
How to cultivate and care for them
The daisies are not particularly demanding plants as regards the most suitable type of soil. The one traditionally used in the garden is fine, perhaps by lightening it with a little sand and pumice stone. This significantly increases drainage levels. Too moist soil is not good as too dry soil is not tolerated. The right middle way is needed. The soil, then, must contain a good dose of organic substance. Medium kneading is certainly the ideal solution. The daisies multiply by seed in winter, directly inside a seedbed. Alternatively, the rhizomes are removed during the autumn season. In both cases, the Marguerites guarantee a perfect rooting.
