    Masses of pink, scarlet and white, pom-pom like flowers appear in autumn and again in spring above the spoon-shaped bright green leaves. 'Bellissima' is a beautiful and long-flowering mixture of daisies, which although tolerant of partial shade, will flower best in full sun. Hardy and evergreen, they are often grown as annual bedding where their compact and neat habit makes them perfect for edging spring displays in windowboxes, patio containers, borders and paths.

    Grown in individual plug cells, each plant measures about 4 - 6cm tall (from the base of the root to the top of the plant). They are ideal for keen gardeners who have a greenhouse where the plants can be grown on until they are ready for planting out in the garden.

    Please note: We grow these especially for you, so we do request that full payment is made when you place your order. See above for despatch dates. To ensure that your plants arrive in the best possible condition each pack will be despatched individually. Please also be aware that the planter in the photograph is not included.

    Garden care: Pinch out the growing tips to encourage bushier growth and keep well watered. Feed with a good, high potash fertiliser (such as Tomorite) on a regular basis and pinch off the spent flowerheads to encourage more to form.
