As Bellis perennis, the "beautiful", "persevering", the little daisy was included in the dictionary of plant names. In the floral language, they symbolize purity and childlike innocence. This was long before short-cut lawn carpets became very modern and popular, and the delicate flower along with the dandelion slid into the negative list of unwanted lawn flowers. Fortunately, some plant breeders regretted this fact and created new varieties of simple beauty. Daisies in pastel and rich reds and pinks suddenly appeared in the gardens. What was lost, however, is the characteristic "persevering", because with the lush bloom ornament the plants became increasingly demanding and today are cultivated in the garden only for two years. The cultivated Bellis carry names like "Roggli", "Pomponette" or "Habanera".
Bellis as decoration objects on the table
The best sowing time is in June and July. Daisies are light germs, so you should cover the seeds only very thinly with soil. With attentive care then develop by autumn down-to-earth leaf rosettes, with which the plants outlast the winter. Of course you could cover the new plants in the fall with cold insulating foil as a precaution to protect them from heavy frost. If you have planted the rosettes in pots or boxes, then you can place them in a sheltered room for the winter and ensure that the earth does not dry out. The reward for this work comes at the beginning of spring. Already in March, the first buds show up.

In the nursery, blooming Bellis plants are already available in spring. It should be noted, however, that these are much more spoiled in the greenhouse than the self-bred specimens. For this reason, it is recommended to bring the delicate beauties into the warm house. Otherwise, it is possible that they will not survive the eventual late frost.
Daisies are closely related to Easter customs
Very few people know that the tender, wild-growing daisies are edible. The buds and flowers taste slightly spicy and are therefore an excellent topping for a sandwich or a colorful, healthy salad.

Daisies are closely related to Easter customs. If you pick and eat the first three flowers of the year with your mouth, you will be spared illnesses all year round. If you can cover 7 flowers at once with your foot, spring is here.
Daisy's beautiful sister in the pot
Children love daisies and use them for oracle games (he loves me, he does not love me ...) or make wreaths out of it. Are not enough good reasons why the popular Bellis cultivars lean their heavy heads out of beds or pots and discover their ancestors in the lawn ?!
