The Q&A Archives: Potting Gerber Daisies

Question: Do Gerber daisies do well in pots/containers?

Answer: Yes, gerberas are good container plants because they do well in situations with good drainage. Gerberas thrive in full sun and rich soil with excellent drainage. To water, provide a thorough dousing and then allow the soil to dry before flooding again. The plants need frequent feeding during the growing season and will produce new leaves and flowers if the old leaves and flowers are pinched off regularly. You can bring them indoors to a brightly lit location for the winter, too.
