Buy Argyranthemum frutescens white marguerite: long lasting summer daisies


  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: well drained, moderately fertile soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April to September
  • Hardiness: tender

    A tender evergreen shrub that will provide masses of colour from spring to early autumn. One of the best loved of all the summer bedding plants due to the long-lasting flowers, the pure white daisies with yellow centres look great above the rich green foliage. Like all marguerites, it needs a sunny spot for best results, and should be grown in pots which can be protected during the winter in frost prone areas.

  • Garden care: Pinch out the growing tips to encourage bushiness and apply a deep, dry mulch around the base of the plant in autumn.Take cuttings to ensure against winter losses, however even if top growth is damaged by the frost, the plants often re-grow from the base in spring.

Plant up summer containers

After the last frost date, plant up containers with tender flowering bedding and reliable foliage plants. Line terracotta pots with polythene, taking care not to cover the planting holes, to reduce water loss through the porous sides of the pot.
