The Q&A Archives: Margarita Africana Daisy

Question: My African daisy plant is in full sun, and is very healthy. It keeps growing but very few flowers. I have been feeding it Miracle Grow All Purpose food every 2 weeks and it still doesn't produce any flowers. Thanx, Linda

Answer: I suspect all your tender loving care and your regular feeding is keeping your African Daisy from flowering. Too much nitrogen fertilizer results in lots of green growth, but at the expense of flowers. Hold off on feeding your plant. Next time you feed use a low nitrogen, high phosphorous fertilizer (such as a bloom booster). This should encourage less green growth and more flowers. Enjoy!
