Daisies look beautiful in your garden, when they grow.
Guess what – the federal government budget might be in a little bit of an inquest right now, which might or might not be resolved by August 2nd, thus, this might be a great time to start thinking about getting your garden going for next year. Daisies are a great plant to start out your garden with, they grow easily.
There’s a few reasons why getting seeds right now is a good idea. First of all, if a person purchases a few natural spectrum lightbulbs, it is possible to have a small container garden area in a room year-round.
Why daisies, you, dear reader, might be asking, what does this article have to do with daisies, or, perhaps, this isn’t even an article, it’s just a list of names after a short stub, and it doesn’t even mention gerbera daisies, those great daisies that every girl gets in a bouquet. Well, those flowers can be purchased for under $10 for an entire container full of them, on a live plant, and grown indoors.
Painted Daisies (Pyretheum)
Coneflowers (Echinacea purpura)
Indian Blanket (Gallardia)
Once you are successful at starting a batch of these daisies and daisy-like flowers, you are ready for the creation of your first home-grown bouquet, so, you might want to plant some baby’s breath. I got mine from Cheap Seeds, and am hoping that the sprouts were not all eaten by the local raccoons, who most certainly found one bucket full to be tasty enough to turn over after indelicately chomping on a few.
Secondly, there is a federal budget crisis going on in the United States, and debt ceiling negotiations are presently underway. The government of Minnesota already experienced a shut-down, thus, it might be a good idea to plan ahead for summer activities in August and September.
Thirdly, the second planting season in places like Georgia, North Texas, and Central California has begun, for those of us with regular access to water, these flowers will bloom sometime around late November before the first frost. Ordering the big packet of seeds now for those of us living in Florida or South Texas gives us time to practise activities like watering, and recognizing what the newly germinated wildflower plants look like prior to the planting season which starts in November, and runs through February.
Daisies, or daisy-like flowers are usually easy to grow, and with careful planning, will beautify your property.
