Creeping Daisy Seeds


Creeping daisy, also known as white buttons, snow daisy and mini marguerite, is a low-growing plant originating in northern Africa that has since made its way widely around the Mediterranean region. 

The petite plant is a perennial in mild regions and a self-seeding annual in colder climates. It reaches a maximum of 25 cm in height and produces dainty white daisy-like flowers in bunches. Like most daisies, full sun exposure is preferable. Creeping daisies are a true sight to behold when the bushy shrubs burst with blossoms of fine white petals and golden centers throughout late summer and fall. 

Because of their low-growing habit, try cultivating creeping daisies in rock gardens, as a ground cover or in planters of all shapes and sizes. Butterflies and other pollinators will find their way to plantings of creeping daisies. Deer and rabbit resistant and agreeable to grow, this vigorous variety is a perfect choice for beginner gardeners.

Daisies are a classic perennial that are easy to grow and propagate. Their cheerful faces and upright posture make them an attractive addition anywhere in the landscape or garden. Just be mindful of their vigorous growing habit. They spread readily and can easily take over wild uncultivated areas.

Daisies can be started indoors or out. To get a head start, plant seeds in flats or individual pots of fertile soil six to ten weeks before the last frost. Press the seeds into the soil and barely cover. Move them to a sunny window and mist the soil, keeping it evenly moist. Thin the seedlings when they germinate. Plant plenty of seeds and keep the strongest contenders. After the last frost has passed, move seedlings outdoors to gradually harden them off until they’re ready for planting.

Daisy seeds can also be sown directly into the garden bed. Soil should be well-drained and fertile. Add compost to the bed to address both of these needs. Space seeds to their specified distance and plant a few in each spot. Don’t completely cover the seeds, they need light to germinate. Water well and thin after germination.

Daisies should be planted where they get full sunshine. They can adapt to partial shade, but it will compromise the potential for maximum blooms. Daisies will tolerate poor soil, but not soggy soil. Drainage is the most important factor to consider.

Compost or a balanced fertilizer can be used to feed the flowers throughout the year. While daisies do well in moist conditions, they can become drought tolerant after getting established. As long as they receive about 3 cm of water per week, daisies will produce their cheerful summer blooms. Daisies are capable of tolerating and adapting to various climates and temperatures. They are deer resistant and are not susceptible to many pests or diseases.

As short-lived perennials, daisies should be replenished every year. In the early spring before flowers appear, or after flowers have faded in the fall, plants can be divided. This will produce more plants and keep their growth fresh and healthy.

Deadhead spent flowers to extend blooming later into the year. When flowers are finally killed by a frost, cut them back to a few centimeters above the soil.

Daisies are the epitome of a cut flower. Their symmetrical shape and classic look can last longer than a week in a vase. 


- The name daisy traces its origin back to an old English phrase ‘’Daes eage,’’ which translates to ‘’day’s eye.’’ The term comes from the fact that daisies close their petals in the evening to reopen them again the next morning, thus making them the ‘’first eyes’’ to see the morning sun each day.

- Daisy seeds will remain viable for 3 years if stored in a cool, dark place, ideally between 4 and 10⁰C. After that, the germination rate may start to go down.


You know that a lush, fruitful garden needs good soil, frequent watering, and sunlight to grow, but it’s the seeds that really make the harvest.

Picked and bagged for 2024 the vast majority of our seeds have germination rates of over 85%. The seeds are all-natural, non-GMO, non-hybrid, untreated, and open-pollinated for seed saving.

We have put a lot of thoughts into the design and packaging of our seed packets. Our seeds are all carefully packed in food grade kraft paper/aluminium zipper lock bags, and then are shipped in eco-friendly padded mailers.

We heat-seal each of our seed packet for even more protection from moisture, odour and light, allowing you to store your seeds for up to 3x longer than paper or plastic. Plant them all, germinate some indoors, save some for next season - it’s up to you!
