This colorful, early-spring combo does great in cool temperatures and can even handle a light frost. But if a late hard freeze is predicted, move the container into the garage for overnight protection. You can even cover it with an old bed sheet — just stick a bamboo stake through the center of the pot first, to prevent moisture from making contact with foliage and flowers.

Cool-weather cape daisies start slowing down when nighttime temps reach 60 degrees F. Toss them to make room for a summer combo or you can save them until fall. Just cut off any remaining flowers and buds, move to a dry, shady spot, and let the soil dry out in between waterings. Use a balanced liquid food twice monthly so plants have plenty of energy for flowers when temperatures cool off again.
