May 28, Cut daisy stems to 1–2 in (– cm) above the soil line in winter. Give your daisies a drastic pruning every year after the first frost. Use a sharp pair of gardening shears to trim each daisy stem so that no more than 1–2 inches (– cm) protrudes up above the soil%(54).
Jun 14, Your African Bush Daisy would survive severe pruning now but if we experience unseasonably warm weather your plant would be fooled into thinking it should put out new growth.
This new growth would be vulnerable if temperatures drop suddenly, which is very probable. The new growth would freeze and damage the treeleaning.buzzted Reading Time: 2 mins. Aug 20, You trim the growth with a pair of hand pruners or use electric hedge shears. I’d cut back the herbaceous or green stems avoiding the old woody portions of the treeleaning.buzz: Bay Area News Group.
Apr 01, In the fall, cutting back the stems to 2 inches (5 cm.) from the ground after the foliage has yellowed is a common practice. You may also choose to leave those dying stems in place to provide winter protection for the plant.
Cut back the dead stems back to soil level in late autumn/early winter when the plant has finished blooming. You wouldn't do this if the flowers were OK (although I give you permission to maul a Bradford pear any time).
Flowers are the most cold-sensitive parts of these plants and it's very likely that the rest is just fine.
