I have planted some african daisies in my garden and they are doing good but how do I prune them without taking away their shape?

An all over shearing will keep your African daisies about the same shape but a slightly smaller version of the original plant. The more you prune, the more your plants will flower since pruning encourages new growth and African daisies flower on new growth. Start by pruning yours back now by several inches. In mid-summer, shear them back again by 2-4 inches. If you prune them back on a regular basis they will remain full and bushy, and develop lots of flowers. Enjoy!
