Daisies in the lawn

Dilly3Dilly3 Posts: 91

Yesterday I saw something I hadn't seen for a long time, a lawn full of daisies . It looked really beautiful. it was a good sized lawn and the affect was like a light sprinkling of snow. 

I wish I had some in my lawn.

    Do you feed and weed? you won't get daisies if you do that. 

    Easy enough to come by. I'm sure someone would let you extract a piece to start in your lawn

    i know what you mean Dilly. I have a small patch in my lawn and their little faces were glowing in the sun. I love them. Remind me of days on the school playing field making daisy chains.

    I have them in my garden for the 1st time this year. Glad they've decided to show up!

    I have them & buttercups, they pop back up in no time after mowing. As long as my lawn is green & not patchy, I'm happy image

    Glad this isn't a thread about how to get rid of them. 

    I love them too -and  the little violets.

    In London. Keen but lazy.

    I've got thousands; keep the grass a little long and they'll do well.

    i was shocked a couple of weeks ago when I saw little pots of them in the garden centre for £1.99 each!

    Based in Sussex, I garden to encourage as many birds to my garden as possible.

    My frot lawn has buttercups and Daisies but the back lawn has none justclover and Dandilions.. I think they also remind me of making Daisy chains as a child..  I think now I would find it all too fiddly lol.

    My friend is growing a wild flower lawn, can't wait to see how that turns out..

    I have a small patch of daisies in the lawn which I do forward rolls on when drunk, (a family tradition) and also encourage clover to flower later in the year for the bees.

    Our lawn is more flowers and weeds than grass, but I like it like this - daisies, clover, primroses, violets and unfortunately some ivy too. One day we will get down to pulling some of the ivy out.
