At the moment I am growing three tiny daisy plants.  I planted these plants, from the seeds, in early December last year.  Now they are little plants that have about 12 leaves.

But, I did not buy these seeds.  I got them from our own daisy plants at home. How?

To get the seeds you need to, of course, get them from the flower. To tell if the seeds are ripe, the flower should look dry and dead.  Carefully pick the flower (be very careful because the flower could crumble) and gently pull it apart.

Seeds

Somewhere in the centre there should be some seeds. Different flowers have different amounts of seeds. So don’t be surprised if there is 5 in one flower.

When you are collecting your seeds make sure you have an envelope or plastic bag handy as the wind could easily blow away the seeds.

I planted my seeds and watered them a little bit every day. After 2 or 3 weeks a tiny shoot sprouted. That shoot quickly opened into 2 leaves.  I have now had my plants for 4 months and they are about 8-10 cm tall.

Tips:
I water my plants every day, in the morning. I also keep them on my windowsill in little pots.  On a specially hot days keep checking on them because they easily dry up. If they are drying up water them a bit more.

    You have so patient and diligent to keep up the watering. I can’t wait to see it when it flowers.
