Cultural Information for: Bellis Galaxy Perennial
Common Name: English Daisy
Botanical Name: Bellis perennis
Seed Count: 19,800/ounce 700/gram
Optimum Germination Temperature: 64-68°F / 18-20°C
Optimum Growing Temperature: 59-68°F / 15-20°C
Plug Culture 6 weeks (220 / 10 x 22 tray)
Stage One (days 1 - 10) Sow seed into plug flats using a well-drained sterile soil with no starter charge and lightly cover the seed with fine vermiculite. Overly rich soil will cause seedlings to overgrow and become leggy. We recommend using a 128 or 200 plug cell tray. Maintain a
soil temperature of 64-68°F/18-20°C with sufficient moisture to prevent drying out the seeds.
Stage Two (days 11 - 20) After seedlings emerge, reduce moisture and place in a well-ventilated bright house and maintain a temperature between 59-68°F/15-20°C. Apply a light feed of 100 ppm Nitrogen from a well-balanced
Stage Three (days 21 - 35) As seedlings begin to fill in maintain a soil E.C. level of 0.5 to 1.0 with a pH between
5.5 to 6.5. Fertilize as needed with 100 ppm of Nitrogen
from a well-balanced fertilizer.
Stage Four (days 36 - 45) Plugs are ready for sale or transplanting. Reduce fertilizer and maintain in a cool place until either sold or transplanted.
4 inch Production
Potting Up: Seedlings should be large enough for potting about 6 weeks after sowing. Transplant into 4 inch/10 cm. pots using a well-drained growing medium. A porous more open media is recommended for best results.
Growing on: Select a sunny location and maintain a temperature of 59-68ºF/15-20ºC. Fertilize moderately with
100-150 ppm N every 10-14 days. Adding 1 gram of 10-18-
15 slow release per pot is also recommended. After 4-5 true leaves develop on seedlings, reduce watering, as plants will absorb moisture quickly causing the plants to overgrow and become soft. Aphids are attracted to Bellis, so spray as needed to control.
Flowering: W ill flower in 80-100 days after sowing
