Old fashioned gerbera seeds are a line in our seed range. They can be purchased from garden centres and online via retailers.
As you're probably aware gerberas are becoming fashionable again, particularly as cut flowers. Gerberas are available in vibrant new hues with broad petals in double and semi-double forms. As well as improving flowers, plant breeders have developed a range of more compact plants for the instant potted colour market.
Cultivated gerberas (Gerbera jamesonii) are derived from a wild South African daisy sometimes referred to as the Transvaal or Barberton daisy.
Beste Gerbera Growing Conditions
Gerberas are perennials and do best in full sun, in well-drained soil. They will grow in most parts of Australia but are happiest in a warm climate. In cool or moist areas plants need excellent drainage and shelter from the cold. If your soil is poorly drained, grow the plants in a raised garden bed. If you experience wet autumns and winters plant gerberas where they will keep dry during the chilly months.
