As your Gerbera daisy grows it will eventually need to be repotted. During the repotting process you can divide up your crown and expand your container collection of gerbera daisies. The best time to repot your Gerbera daisy is in April before they start flowering. Make sure when you repot your daisy that the top of the crown is not covered by the soil, and make sure you remove any dead leaves or dead flowers. Finally, keep your Gerbera daisy in the shade for a couple of weeks to give the root system a chance to establish itself in the new container.
