I'm interested in growing gerbera daisies from seed. When is the best time to start? I read somewhere in the Fall. Is that true? Should I start them indoors or outdoors? Thank you

In frost free winters such as yours, you can sow fresh gerbera seeds outdoors in the fall and they will sprout the following spring but probably not flower until their second year. Or, you can start the seeds indoors in the late winter or early spring and transplant them out into the garden in the spring or summer. If you decide to start them indoors, seed germinates best at about 68-78 deg F., in pots of sandy potting soil.
