When ordering this plant is it mature? I.e. if I order it in March will it flower this July/August if it is planted outside when received?
I would like to grow some daisys with a large head to be used in wedding bouquets for a wedding at the end of July this year. (I would like them with yellow centre i.e. not ox-eye with the dark mark in the middle) I think this type of daisy may be suitable but would like some advice please. Thanks!
