Madeira daisy bushes remain amongst the most popular of all the spring flowering flowers. Marguerites, or Madeira daisies as they are called these days, form compact bushes 70cm to 80cm tall and equally as wide. They’re topped with masses of daisy flowers for months on end. Colours range from white and pink to wine-red, maroon and yellow. Some are single flowers while others are fully double, like little pompons.

Full sun, rich soil and good drainage are vital to having healthy daisy bushes in the winter and spring garden. Cut off dead flowers and feed every 2 to 3 weeks with 3:1:6 water soluble plant food. Use them for filling up spaces in large beds and borders or planted in large pots. Daisy bushes are easy to grow and richly rewarding for gardeners across the entire country.
