IMPORTANT: Please pay close attention to the guidelines provided below before attempting to germinate Gerbera daisies from seeds.
It is crucial to follow the sowing method recommended for successful results. So, ensure that the soil temperature remains consistently above 70 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the day and night. Failure to maintain a suitable temperature or exposing the seeds to air temperatures below 70 degrees Fahrenheit (day and night) will prevent germination. To guarantee favorable outcomes, refrain from sowing the seeds outdoors or indoors with fluctuating temperatures below the recommended threshold.
When starting Gerbera daisies from seed, whether in pots or in the garden, gently insert the wider end of the seed directly into the potting mix. Ensure that the fine pointed end remains exposed above the soil, approximately 1/8" inch, as these seeds require light for germination. It is advisable to water the pots from the bottom and maintain a minimum soil temperature of 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Once your seedling reaches a height of 2 inches and develops at least two sets of leaves, you can proceed with transplanting it into your garden or into larger pots.
If you live in hotter zones like 9-10, it is recommended to plant the Gerbera daisies in your garden where they can benefit from afternoon shade. These plants thrive best in well-drained soil, so select a higher area of your garden and incorporate coarse sand into the garden bed to enhance drainage and prevent waterlogged roots.
In colder zones ranging from 4 to 7, you have the option to treat Gerbera daisies as annuals or follow a process similar to overwintering Dahlias. If you choose to overwinter them, carefully dig up the plants and store them until the following spring when you can replant them in your garden.
