Pot up hardy osteospermum daisies and grow them on in frost free conditions until plants are well grown. When plants are well developed and all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days before planting them outdoors into borders and patio containers. Grow osteospermum plants in any well drained soil in a warm, sheltered position in full sun. African Daisies dislike cold wet soils. Improve heavy soil prior to planting by adding plenty of coarse grit.
Feed and water osteospermum plants regularly throughout the growing season. Deadhead faded osteospermum flowers throughout the flowering period to encourage more blooms to be produced.

  1. Osteospermum

    By Maureen Shields 20-04-2015

    Received Osteospermum Serenity collection last week, potted them on same day. Already one of the purple variety is no longer with us and another purple one is not looking too good. All the other colours seem ok at present

  2. 2 out of three ain't bad.

    By Jackie Reid 26-03-2015

    Tresco purple didn't make it. I potted up all three when I received these plants They've been in a cold frame over winter. Both the pink and white have survived but the tresco purple didn't like the cold. I'm assuming it was the cold that killed them. The plants turned black. It wasnt the hardest winter and whilst they didn't have heat they were always covered. So white and pink look healthy but the purple didn't make it. I'm giving a review in case there is something that might be wrong with these plants and not complaining. I truly don't expect every plant I receive to survive as I may be responsible. You never know, but it is strange that all six are fine and the three of the same name aren't.
