Daisy, daisy – give me your answer do!………

…..as to why you are spreading across my lawn in spite of lawn care treatments etc!!

They do look quite pretty though along with the clover and the dandelios and moss.  My lawn is very damp – it is basically on clay and with the amount of rain we have had this spring up until this week it positively squelched.  I put a moss and weed killer down last year and the ‘lawn’ was a very sorry state with the odd blade here and there amongst the dead weeds.  The weeds seem to have come back even stronger this year.  I have aerated, scarificied and feed to no avail.  I dont suppose it has helped that I grew some Bellis daisies this year for spring colour. I think I was sold a dude pack of seeds as they didnt look like the picture at all.  They were all white, single and remarkably like the diasies growing in my lawn – so maybe the Bellis daisies have self sown into the lawn!!!  I have now some to the conclusion that if you cant fight it you might as well work with it so I (or my son) will cut the ‘lawn’ on a regular basis and in between we will enjoy the pretty flowers.

  1. I have a mini-meadow lawn too which I tend to mow short. From a distance, if you squint, it looks like grass. In medieval times I think the daisy lawn was very popular in elite gardens. You see them in old tapestries and paintings.

  2. I laughed till I cried. It is pretty. When it goes to seed–look out!
