We recently bought a small daisy in a pot and put it outside in sunlight. It's limp and the flowers are closed up.

It doesn't sound as though your plant is getting enough water. Try immersing the pot in a larger container of water and letting it sit for about 15 minutes. Then allow excess moisture to drain and set the plant in an area where it gets morning sun and afternoon shade. Once the plant recovers and perks up, cut away the dead flowers, leaves and stems. It should produce healthy new growth from the roots.

Best wishes with your daisy!
