hello,ive just bought some gerbera daisies from asda 10p each,a good water and they are fine,plus a little rose,my question is do the daisys go in the garden or a house plant and do they last more than a year,and if i put the little rose in the garden with a ton of fertilizer in a terracotta pot would it be ok,ty chris



Hi, although Gerbera are perennials, at best they're half hardy, there are about 40 species, which vary from half hardy to frost tender, so I would use them as summer bedding, they make good cut flowers if you have enough flowers ready at the same time, some tend to flower 1 flower at a time.
The Rose, [I'm presuming that it is a patio rose], I would also treat as a summer decoration, although they can overwinter, they don't seem to be as florif'erous in subsequent years, Derek.
