For cooler climates with short growing seasons, start the Chrysanthemum Daisy seeds indoor 6 - 8 weeks before frost season is over. For warmer climates, sow the Shasta Daisy seeds directly outdoors into prepared beds in the spring after danger of frost has passed. Sow the wild flower seed on the surface and keep moist.
