English daisy/bellis-- easy to grow from seed?

DisplacedClevelander(6a)July 9, 2013

Hello!

Considering growing some English daisies (also known as Bellis) from seed. Was hoping to just drop some seeds into the earth (this summer). Are these easy to grow? Should I just hold off until the spring and try to grow these indoors?

Any and all advice is appreciated. If its not obvious enough, I don't really know what I am doing and figuring it out as I go along.

Thanks in advance for sharing your expertise and wisdom! I need it! :-D

Bellis perennis , Sow (barely covered) at 68F, keep moist, germinates in about two weeks. If your temps are quite a bit warmer, it could delay germination.

Also, they seem to like the cooler spring weather, so I'd start in very early spring and sow indoors under lights.

I always spread the seed that the plants produce outdoors but I never have gotten germination that way.
