Everlasting Daisies (Helipterum roseum) are hardy, drought tolerant Australian native annuals, that are perfect for sowing from seed in April. The mixed hybrids in the Yates seed range are a colourful blend of red, white and pink semi double paper daisies.


How to grow everlasting daisies in a garden

  1. Fill starter pots or trays with Yates Seed Raising Mix. Sow seeds, cover, firm down and water well. Keep the soil moist so the seeds don’t dry out. 
  2. While the seedlings are growing, choose a sunny spot in the garden and prepare the planting area well by digging in Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser.
  3. Once seedlings have emerged, feed weekly with Yates Thrive Roses & Flowers Liquid Plant Food.  Allow seedlings to grow to about 7cm before transplanting.
  4. When transplanting them into your prepared garden bed, ensure seedlings are well spaced – at least 20 to 30cm apart. Mulch with an organic mulch, such as sugar cane or pea straw and water in well.
  5. Feed weekly with Yates Thrive Roses & Flowers Liquid Plant Food to ensure strong root development and mass flowering.
