These cute little English daisies (Bellis perennis) are only about 15cm high but their colourful blooms make a big impact. They come in white, cream, pink and red shades, or a mix of two, and flower in winter in mild areas and spring in colder areas. They look quite lovely planted among spring bulbs, or grow them along a path edge or in containers. Seeds can be sown from February to April and again from June to September. They prefer full sun but they’ll tolerate some shade. Although they have short stems, they’re great for small posies. Seeds are available from Kings Seeds and Egmont Seeds.
