Removing faded flowers regularly will keep plants blooming well into the summer if the temperatures are cool. English Daisy flowers are used to under plant tulips in large public landscapes, and they are excellent anywhere in the garden, as well as in containers or tubs. They readily establish in the garden with English Daisy flower seed. Bellis Perennis seeds requires light to germinate, so don't cover with soil.
