Care Guide

Good pest and disease resistance

One issue Osteospermums can have is with Aphids: check the leaves regularly for any possible infestation. If you see some, try to pick the bugs off and spray the infected area with some soapy water. You can also plant a companion plant nearby, such as Marigolds, which will attract predatory insects such as ladybirds that will eat the aphids.MORE

Water regularly

Water to keep the soil consistently moist. During hot, dry spells, this can require you to water the plant every day, especially if the plant is in a hanging basket or pot.MORE

Full sun

Osteospermums should be planted somewhere they receive around 6-8 hours of direct sunlight every day.MORE

Moderately fertile, well-drained soil

Osteospermums can tolerate poorer soils so potting compost is not necessary but the soil should be well-draining.MORE

Feed regularly

Feed every two weeks during the growing period with a general purpose plant food. MORE

Prune often

Deadhead the plant often to encourage new blooms.MORE
