The Bellis perennis or common Daisy is a well-known hardy free-flowering border plant, growing well in any garden soil and easily increased by simply dividing the roots immediately after flowering, each crown making a separate plant. It may also be raised from seeds, but as a large percentage of seeds obtained are single-flowered, it is much safer and more satisfactory to propagate by dividing the roots. In propagating from seeds, the seeds should be covered to the depth of an eighth of an inch.
