This plant can be grown as an annual or if protected from frosts in more mild climates it can be planted as a perennial.

Plant your plugs indoors on a sunny windowsill in a good quality potting compost. Do not over water but do not allow the compost to dry out. After the last frosts, gradually acclimatise the plants to the outdoors before planting in their final position in well drained soil in full sun.
Remove dead flowers as they fade to encourage more blooms. Will survive winter outdoors in mild areas. Although gazanias are drought tolerant, water in prolonged dry spells.
