The Q&A Archives: Gerber Daisy

Question: My Gerber Daisy is dying. I need to know the care of it and how often it should bloom if the flowers are cut or should they be cut?

Answer: Gerbera jamesonii or Transvaal daisy is native to South Africa. Gerbera's thrive in full sun and rich soil with excellent drainage. They prefer a thorough watering and then dry soil, followed by a 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. Plants generally grow about one-foot tall with erect flower stems about 1 1/2' tall. Good luck with your plants
