I have planted some daisies about a month ago. They are starting to bloom, but I've notice tiny holes on the flowers. Would you know why I have holes on my flowers?

Caterpillars, beetles and sometimes earwigs can chew holes in the flower petals, but I'm not sure which might be munching on yours. Inspect your plant for the pests and pick them off if you find them. Try going out at night with a flashlight - earwigs are most active during the evening hours. Hope you find the culprits!
