  • Direct sow: 2-4 weeks after the last average frost date when the soil has warmed, typically in mid spring. Place the seeds beneath a light layer of soil and maintain consistent moisture during the germination. When planting in your garden, space gazania plants about 12 inches apart to ensure they have enough room to flourish.

Step Three: Growing

How to keep happy?

  • Gazanias do best in sandy, well-draining soil but will tolerate many soil types and conditions.
  • Gazania plants are quite tolerant of the heat that emanates from pavement, allowing you to incorporate them into your sidewalk garden or along your driveway.
  • Their affinity for well-drained soil also makes them an ideal selection for a rock garden.
