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. Mixed results

    By Jurgen Doornik 02-07-2014

    Similar experience to barry preece. Planted all together last year. The medium pink are great, easily 5*. The whites have gone, and one feeble dark pink left, so no stars there. (Was not the cold: almost no frost, and many hanging basket plants survived the winter.)


    Thank you for your review. I am very sorry to hear of your disappointment with your plants. If you would like to contact our Customer care team on, one of our agents will be happy to investigate this matter further.

  2. Pretty

    By barry preece 22-06-2014

    Very pretty flowers. However, none of the dark pink plants haven't made it though the winter even though it was mild and only two of the white ones have. The medium pink are thriving.


    Thank you for your review. I am very sorry to hear of your disappointment with your purchase. If you would like to contact our Customer care team on, one of our agents will be happy to investigate this matter further.

  3. Stunning flowers

    By Jenny Erby 17-05-2014

    Bought these in 2013, and they flowered first season very pretty, but this year they have exploded into a mass of flower since late April, deadheading them but a month on still flowering prolifically. Definitely will recommend these.


    Thank you for your review. I hope we can continue to be of service.

  5. Great Plugs

    By Alan Kent 14-09-2012

    Received these "plugs" yesterday and was impressed at the size and health of the plants. Biggest plugs I've received before. Jumbo indeed. Now potted up and hopefully will do well over winter in the greenhouse.

  6. Stunning

    By Anna Hartley 10-09-2012

    Really good grower and the white is really stunning. Hoping they will overwinter ok and ordering some more as they easily beat the slugs where others failed this year!

  7. a winner

    By Cindy Gissing 02-10-2011

    A little slow to establish but now flowering very well hope for a longer display next year.
