Goldfinch Shasta Daisy Care
Shasta Daisies prefers loamy, moist, but well-drained soil with a neutral pH. This plant needs full to partial sun to look its best. The Goldfinch prefers consistently damp soil, but these plants do not like to be soggy. Water Shasta Daisies only when the top couple of inches of soil feels dry.
This plant prefers rich soil, so top dress the soil with organic compost to give the plant a nutritional boost. The compost layer will also retain moisture and hold back weeds for added convenience. Apply a balanced fertilizer once a month during the growing season. The foliage will stay in place in areas with warm winters, but in areas with cold winters, all of the greenery can be trimmed back in the fall. Cover the plant with mulch to protect against inclement weather.
