Large, white, daisy-like flowers with yellow centres on long stalks. This native wildflower is commonly found growing in bold swathes on grassy banks and roadside verges from May to September. It grows
well on any soil in a sunny position. It makes an excellent addition to the wildlife garden and attracts many insects.
Sow February to June onto the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed
compost. Cover with a very fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place sown container in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag at a temperature of 15-20C (59-68F) until after
germination which usually takes 10-14 days. Do not exclude light as this helps germination.
When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise to
outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out.
