Do English Daisies attract specific pests?

Aphids are the primary pest concern for English Daisy. These small insects can cluster on the undersides of leaves, sucking sap and potentially harming your plants. Regularly inspect your daisies, particularly the leaves, and if aphids are detected, consider using natural remedies like neem oil or a gentle soapy water spray to deter them.

When is the best time to repot my English Daisies?

The ideal time to repot English Daisies is every 2-3 years, typically in the spring. Repotting allows you to refresh the soil, provide new nutrients, and give your daisies the space they need to continue thriving. Before repotting, carefully remove the plant from its current container, inspect the roots, and trim any damaged or overly long roots. Choose a slightly larger pot with fresh, well-draining soil to support healthy growth.

What’s the ideal sunlight exposure for English Daisies?
