Gerbera (Gerbera Asteraceae)

Comments on this photo


Hi Kate, I like Gerbera, but they're a bit too tender for me, they're very sensitive to cool, never mind cold weather, Derek.

They are so pretty...but I have to grow them as annuals. Our climate is not hospitable.

Thanks Derek, that’s good to know actually. I’ve never had them before. I’m in East Yorkshire, so, it may struggle. Fingers crossed.

Thanks Lori, I hope it’ll be ok in my garden. I’ve potted it up, but I shall see if it tolerates it here.

Hi Kate, I think that East Yorkshire will definitely be too cold for them, I would do the same as Lori does, and buy new plants each year, but leave it until this time of year, Derek.

Thanks Derek, you are probably right there. I will take your advice along with Lori’s
