Gerbera Daisies - I am VERY new to this!!

JenH1723April 30, 2013

Hi everyone! I am VERY new to gardening. VERY NEW. Yesterday was the first time I have ever made an attempt to plant anything in my life. My husband purchased some bushes and shrubs for our front yard garden area, and he is responsible for those! I decided I wanted to go with daisies, because I think they are beautiful, and they just make me smile. We purchased them at our local nursery, and planted them about 2 hours later. I followed the instructions. Today, the daisies seem droopy, like they are really not adjusting well to their new home.

Any suggestions? Also, any tips on watering?

I have them in a location where they receive mostly sun.

Any advice would be very much appreciated. I really want to succeed my first time around!!

Try asking about them on the perennial forum. This forum doesn't seem to be very active. If they are still alive, anything newly planted should be watered every day for a few days, then every other day, until the roots start getting adjusted.

They are probably in transition shock
