Planting & Care
You need to prune-off the spent flowers, once the flowering season is over. These can be used for composting. Deadheading weathered flowers stimulates growth. For pruning thick clusters of seasonal foliage and old stems, use bypass pruners.

Sunlight: Full sun

Soil: Tolerates droughty soil and requires well-drained soil.

Water: Watering the gazania seeds once, every week is sufficient.

Temprature: 60-65 degrees

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer once in every month.

Care:
  • Water the site chosen for sowing the seeds.
  • Allow the soil bed to drain-away the excess water.
  • Dig-up the fertilized soil bed with your hands.
  • Every planting hole should be about 3-mm deep.
  • Ensure that you maintain a minimum distance of about 8 inches between the holes.
  • Fill each hole with gazania seeds and cover it with the dug-up soil.
  • Lightly, clamp upon the moist soil.


Harvesting: After flowering, the plant will produce seed heads containing small clusters of seed with white fluff. Since sparrows and goldfinches love to eat the seed, harvest it promptly to avoid loss. Cut the mature seed heads, or shake them into a container to remove the seed material. Clean the seed as well as possible, then store it in a cool, dry place.

Care:
  • In spring time, promote longer blossoming cycle by clipping off faded blooms and old foliage using a bypass pruner.
  • Clip spent at the leaf node so fresh buds would form at this spot.
  • You may also apply some mulch like organic compost around the plant.
  • Do not overwater your Gazania as this may invite bacteria or fungi or cause root rot.


Special Feature:
Gazania, also called treasure flower, is native to South Africa. True to its name, these sun-loving blooms have a lot of uses to gardens and must be treasured.
