Sowing: Direct sow in spring after the last chance of frost, sowing on the surface of the soil; press the soil down lightly and keep moderately moist until germination, which should take place within 10-14 days. To start indoors, sow on the surface of a flat 6-8 weeks before the last frost of spring. Keep the soil lightly moist and at a temperature of 70 degrees F until germination. Transplant or thin the seedlings as soon as they reach a height of several inches.

Growing: Water seedlings regularly until they become established. Mature plants appreciate occasional watering in drought conditions, but too much moisture will cause disease and root rot. If rust or mildew appears, remove the affected foliage immediately; sometimes red leaves develop, a sign of excessively cold temperatures. Though it can tolerate a light freeze, this plant will not survive snow. It will self-seed and spread easily, but volunteer plants can easily be removed if not wanted. This plant also grows well as a container plant if it has good drainage.

Harvesting: Daisies make long lasting fresh flowers; cut the stems long and place them in water immediately. This entire plant is also edible; the foliage is often used for fresh greens. For the best tenderness, cut young leaves.
