Gerbera Daisy Size

kyndalmFebruary 19, 2010

Okay, this is probably a silly question, but here goes:

If I purchase blooming plants at a greenhouse this summer, will they get bigger/grow more flowers if I transplant them into a larger pot?

My impatiens got HUGE last year, I don't know if this is true for all/most types of annual flowers.

Last year was my first time gardening period and I fell in love :)

It sure will! Just use a fast-draining potting soil, such as cactus mix, or African violet mix, give it some morning sun, and feed it lightly and frequently. It's a good idea to keep an RTU of your favorite mildew spray on hand, too, just in case.
I probably won't get much taller, or get bigger flowers, but you should get a thicker, wider plant with a lot more blooms.
