Hardy osteospermums are perfect for containers, rockeries and the front of sun-baked borders. This trio of superb varieties in contrasting shades is sure to create a fabulous display. Versatile and resilient, African Daisies will thrive in hot, dry, neglected conditions, yet remain some of longest-flowering plants in the garden! Expect vibrant summer colour and weed-suppressing ground cover from these easy to grow, sun-loving perennials. Thriving in a well-drained, sheltered spot, they will triumph over heat, drought and light frosts.

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.
