    Deadheading (removing dead flowers) from your daisies should give them a longer life throughout summer and even into early fall, depending on where you live. Try this technique:

    But in general daisies, which flower according to the amount of sunlight the plants, receive, have just the one mass flowering with a few spritzes of new flowers here and there the rest of the summer.

    After the first big flush of bloom on Shasta daisies, cut back the top to the next lower lateral flower bud, right above where a leaf comes out on the stem. You'll get a second, smaller flush of flowers. You can repeat this as often as you see new flower buds emerging lower down on the stem; usually this continues longer on younger plants. When all the lateral flower buds have finished, you can then cut the flowering stem back to the base of the plant, where you'll see some new basal leaves developing (don't cut the basal leaves).
