Planting

From Late Spring TO Late Spring

Marguerites tend to be considered tender perennials in the UK and other temperate zones, though growers say they can last through a mild winter. Therefore it is recommended that plants are either treated as summer bedding or, if larger, brought into the cool greenhouse or conservatory during the winter months. Plant out in full sun and to be planted in well-drained, poor to moderately-fertile soil. However, the species A. frutescens is said to prefer partial shade and moist soil. Young plants to be planted out after all danger of frost has passed.
