I have planted Gerbera daisies in my garden the last two years. They seem to be doing quite well (beautiful flowers, healthy leaves) and then they suddenly die! Help!

Gerbera daisies are fussy about watering. They need a thorough soaking and then the soil should dry out before they're watered again. Try not to splash water on the crown of the plant. Gerbera daisies like the nightime temperature to be about 60F degrees, and the daytime temperature about 75F. The plant will take full morning sunshine, but appreciates some afternoon shade. If the flowers and foliage continue to droop, or when they begin to shrivel, cut them off and allow the plant to produce new stems, foliage and flowers.
