Gerbera Daisy - Knowledgebase Question

Hazel Park, Mi
Question by nra710

I just planted some Gerbera daisies. A neighborhood child picked the heads off all three flowers. Will these rebloom? Or do I need to buy a new plant entirely. If they do rebloom, how do I care for it, to encourage this?

Your Gerbera daisies will send up new flower stems from the crown of the plant. I'd cut off any remaining flower stalk, down below foliage level, to make the plants look more attractive. They will bloom all summer long if you keep the old flowers pruned off. Just water on a regular basis and feed every 2-3 weeks with a half strength dilution of water soluable fertilizer (such as Miracle Gro, Peter's or Shultz's). Enjoy your new plants!
