The gazania Daybreak that I have on the window sill at home finally fully flowered again yesterday, a week too late for the show.
It’s the third time it’s flowered, roughly once a month, and the plant now fills the five inch pot that it’s in.
I’m really taken with these plants and flowers so I’ve decided to grow Talent Mixed from seed next year, which is a variety that has silvery-coloured foliage. There are five colours – orange, red shades, rose shades, white and yellow.
The red shades are more bronze/brown and the yellow flowers are a solid colour. These are the two I particularly like but I’ll be happy with whatever I get to germinate, grow and flower. Perhaps I’ll even have one in flower for next year’s show.
Have a good week!
