|When it is time to replant Shasta Daisy, do I cut the Daisies close to ground or leave the long stem with leaves on it? Thank you

|When the flowers are spent you can prune off the faded flowers along with the long stem. Cut them down to the level of the rest of the plant. If you're digging and transplanting a Shasta Daisy you can divide it by cutting it into smaller portions with the blade of your shovel. As long as each division has both roots and stems with green leaves attached, it will grow into a new plant. Hope this answers your question!
