So you're growing daisies and now it's time to transplant them. Maybe you're moving homes, maybe you're transferring them from a pot into the ground, or maybe you just want to give them more room to grow. Whatever your reasons, here are some tips to make sure the transplanting goes smoothly and doesn't damage your flowers.
Depending on what kind of climate you live in, the timing of your transplanting can be crucial. If you live in a region where there isn't a whole lot of change between seasons, you're pretty much free to transplant anytime. But if your climate isn't so temperate, you'll want to make sure you time it right, so as not to harm your daisies. The best time to transplant your daisies is early spring when the soil will be soft and easy to work, allowing you to remove the plants without traumatizing them. Another good time to transplant is in autumn.
Removing your daisies from the ground can have a traumatizing effect on them. Aside from taking weather conditions into account, try to have the roots exposed for as little time as possible, and make sure they are not dried out, this will decrease the chances of your daisies suffering transplant shock.
Make sure the area to which you are moving your daisies has already been prepared with a hole that is sufficient to accommodate the roots. In the transplanting process, it is essential to keep the roots in tact. A good way to do this is to soak the roots for a few days before transplanting. The ideal weather for transplanting is a mild, overcast day with a chance of rain. Once everything is set, carefully extract the plant and quickly move it into the hole you have prepared. Once in, add a bit of bone meal, and completely fill the hole surrounding the plant with soil. Add a bit of water, and appreciate a job well done.
