These single petaled ‘old style’ Gerberas are much hardier then the fancy doubles. The colours range from off-white to red in pastel colours. Seedlings grow quickly and transplant well and should be at a flowering size in 4 months so if planted in early spring will be flowering in summer. Plants do very well in tubs and flower continuously through summer and autumn but they do need frequent watering.

Gerbera daisies are not frost-hardy and need warmth to germinate. To ensure a summer bloom time, plant the seeds indoors 12 to 18 weeks before the last frost. Use a potting mix soil. Press the seeds on top of well-draining soil, but don't bury the seeds because they need light to germinate.
